1223032-CirqueMechanics_010511_v2Cirque Mechanics was founded by Cirque du Soleil veteran and Boston native Chris Lashua in 2004, as a way to provide family-friendly entertainment that encompassed his passion for the theater, the circus, history and all things mechanical. 

Cirque Mechanics, based in Las Vegas, combines traditional circus disciplines with cirque elements to tell a "real world" story with theatricality.  However, it is the design and exploration of innovative mechanical apparatus and the relationship between performer and machines seen on stage that truly make Cirque Mechanics unique.

CirqueCirque Mechanics first show Birdhouse Factory was produced in partnership with the Circus Center of San Francisco and the Pickle Family Circus, where it opened to stellar reviews.

“The beauty…lies in the generosity with which acts are layered upon each other and the superb integration of circus skills with music, light and choreography. And the glory…is in the excellence of its performers.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“The most important contribution to the American Circus since Cirque du Soleil” — Spectacle Magazine

“exceptional, evocative, eye-catching, ear-catching and, to keep the list short, engrossingly entertaining.”   — The New York Times

Cirque Mechanics launched their second production, Boom Town, this year, presented in partnership with the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in Tacoma, Washington.

Boom Town, a Gold Rush-era story full of the lore and adventure of the Wild West, the ingenuity of mining inspired machines and the talent of world class performers, wowed audiences in Tacoma and will continue to do so on its US tour, which culminates with a booking at New York’s New Victory Theater on Broadway.
