The UNLV Performing Arts Center is pleased to welcome Cirque Mechanics in its new program that celebrates the 250th anniversary of the circus– ’42FT – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels’– at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22. The Omaha World-Herald calls Cirque Mechanics “unforgettably wonderful.”
At the center of every circus we discover a 4-foot ring filled with delights, laughs, and enjoyment. In ’42ft– A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels,’ the business attempts us to jump into the circus ring to experience the endurance of this evolving art kind.
The program’s distinct mechanical interpretation of the standard and its story filled with the truth and lore of the historical one-ring circus, create a welcoming location, similar to a big top, where we can be impressed. The action in 42ft is displayed with stagecraft and a contemporary perceptiveness, showcasing a galloping mechanical metal horse and a rotating camping tent frame for strongmen, acrobats, and aerialists.
