Inspired by the quirky contraptions of Rube Goldberg, the industrial-themed murals of Diego Rivera and the comic slapstick of Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times, this critically-acclaimed cirque show turns a factory into a high-flying funhouse as aerial artists and acrobats interact with original machines, all in an effort to build a better birdhouse. Starring veterans of the Pickle Family and Moscow Circuses, this colorful, creative combination of clowning, art and industry has both toured internationally and enjoyed a well-reviewed Off-Broadway run, and was created and directed by Chris Lashua, the originator of the German Wheel act in Cirque du Soleil's Quidam.

The ROMEROS were breathtaking to hear live. As a music fan all my life, I put this performance at the top of my list of all time best listening. How fortunate to have witnessed "the best ever" in my lifetime of musical treats. Bravo!
