The marvelous performers from Pedal Punk return to The Reg stage! 42FT – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels, is the latest invention from the creative minds of Cirque Mechanics. The company dares us to leap into the circus ring and experience the timelessness of this evolving art form. The shows’ unique mechanical interpretation of the traditional, and its story full of the lore of the historic one-ring circus, create a welcoming place, like a big top, where we can be amazed. The action in 42FT is full of theatricality and a modern sensibility, showcasing a galloping mechanical metal horse and a rotating tent frame for strongmen, acrobats and aerialists. Step right up ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, to the Cirque Mechanics world of gears and canvas, pulleys and sawdust- within 42FT.

Performance is 80 minutes plus a twenty minute intermission.

More about 42FT - A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels:

42ft in diameter has been the measure of the circus ring for 250 years.  Englishman Philip Astley discovered that horses galloping inside this ring provide the ideal platform for acrobatic feats, these equestrian acrobatics, along with clowns and flyers are a large part of what we’ve all come to know as the circus.

This 250th anniversary of Astley’s circus, inspired Cirque Mechanics to produce a one-ring traditional circus show in their own modern mechanical way.  42ft – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels follows the story of a down and out roustabout filled with wanderlust and enamored with the circus, willing to persevere in order to reach his dream of performing under the big top.  42ft displays life in a tent show by exposing the glamour inside the ring and the vitality of the back lot.
