"Birdhouse Factory" is an ongoing project by Chris Lashua (Cirque Mechanics). The show was first mounted in conjunction with the Pickle Family Circus and the San Fransisco Circus Center for the holiday season show in 2004. The show was put together in a few months and ran for three weeks at the Palace of Fine Arts in the Bay area. Birdhouse has also been seen at several corporate events in Las Vegas, Dalas and at the Wharton Center in Lansing, MI.
And yes, that's Fritz again! He joined me on this production!
Frankly, we rock. Got him to keep his clothes on this time though - a big improvement IMO.
This one is the show I am most proud to have been a part. "Birdhouse Factory" has continued to tour internationally and recently made it to Broadway at the New Victory theater's 2008 Holiday show. I had to leave the show when I went back with Cirque du Soleil, but the gang and I are back at work on a NEW production, "Boom Town", slated to open the fall of 2010. Keep your eyes out for it!
Here are some pics from the show:
