Mondavi Center School Matinee Program

Ageless stories spun in mid-air. Acrobats riding on mechanical wonders. All wrought from the raw material of American ingenuity (plus a little clowning around). Inspired in part by Charlie Chaplin’s film Modern Times and by the illustrations of Rube Goldberg, Cirque Mechanic’s Birdhouse Factory is an American circus with incredible and inventive machines, and a story that speaks to us all.
