Enter the most unlikely setting for a circus: a factory; one where the workers are acrobats and the machines are circus props. Welcome to Birdhouse Factory! See a contortionist perform on a turntable powered by unicyclists. Be captivated by the trapeze artist powered by the spins of an acrobat inside a giant wheel. Be stunned as the trampoline wall artists defy the laws of physics.
Birdhouse Factory is a simple story of daily life in a “widgets” factory circa 1935, as workers are brought together by the most unlikely of events: a bird accidentally injured by the main steam boiler. The accident and caring for the bird brings the workers closer together and inspires them to break away from the monotony of the assembly line. They showcase their true inner talents and abilities by using their bodies and machines to build birdhouses in a more joyous and soulful way. The perfect show for the entire family.
