Cirque Mechanics The Birdhouse Factory
After the success of Chris Lashua’s project Birdhouse Factory, which was his collaboration with Circus Center of San Francisco, he founded Cirque Mechanics in 2004. Chris himself is a German Wheel artist who was born in Boston. He was obsessed with wheels and spent all his life on or around them. It was after a decade of participating in the professional freestyle bicycle competitions that he got a chance to perform at Wu Ciao, China’s famed festival, and won a bronze medal. Although this earned him a place in the Cirque du Soleil’s tour of ‘Fascination to Japan’, he couldn’t get to perform with Cirque du Soleil regularly, until 1996, when he was part of the opening act of Quidam. During his tours with Quidam, he began working on his new mechanical contraption which he named as Trolley. This was the start of the idea of building other machines with which acrobatics will interact. He then decided to showcase all the machines on factory floor, place which Chris named as Birdhouse Factory.

Next he added winch to the trolley and did experiments along with Aloysia Gavre, his friend and fellow artist. This then became a duo act that didn’t just emerge out of the study in acrobatics but also out of the relationship between man and woman and not to forget, the machine. He then modified unicycles to power the turntable and made them mobile but also static enough to provide a platform which was more like a conventional ground to host an act. The overhead crane, giant turning wheel and conveyer belt were introduced later to keep up with the factory floor setting. Soon, the factory was growing but to complete his vision, Chris made a team of young talented people consisting of his former friends from Pickle Family Circus and Cirque du Soleil, and the graduates of Circus School of San Francisco. Some artists from Nanjing Acrobatic troupe also joined Chris on his venture which later became one of the America’s best circuses.
