"A spectacular ride!" —Time Out New York
Artful, whimsical and laugh-out-loud funny. Following last season's sold-out performance, Cirque Mechanics returns to Macky with "Birdhouse Factory," the simple story of daily life in a widgets factory. Acrobats, contortionists and clowns draw inspiration everywhere from classic Rube Goldberg machines to Charlie Chaplin, building an unlikely world full of bewitching delights!
For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
