Meet the Makers : Cirque Mechanics

Cirque Mechanics was founded in 2004 by Boston native and German Wheel artist, Chris Lashua, after the success of his collaborative project with the Circus Center of San Francisco, Birdhouse Factory. Cirque Mechanics quickly established itself as a premiere American circus, with its unique approach to performance, inspiring storytelling and innovative mechanical staging.

Cirque Mechanics is a great example of what happens when Makers and performers intersect! They’ll be at the Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire performing and showing off their custom made equipment.
