Birdhouse Factory was inspired, in part, by the masterful industry murals of Mexican- born artist Diego Rivera, the outrageous illustrations of cartoonist Rube Goldberg and the slap-stick humor of Charlie Chaplin’s film Modern Times. While these inspirations make Birdhouse Factory artful, nostalgic, and funny, the true essence of the show comes from the circus.
See a contortionist perform on a turntable powered by unicyclists. Be captivated by the trapeze artist flying high thanks to the spins of an acrobat inside a giant gear-like wheel. Be stunned as the trampoline wall artists defy the laws of physics. Giggle at the antics of the characters, be impressed by the acro-dancing, and enchanted by the story of laughter, love, flight, and birdhouses.
