An emotive and exhilarating tale about human ingenuity and our natural resources. In Zephyr – A Whirlwind of Circus by Cirque Mechanics, audiences will witness the tug of war that exists between man and nature, in the name of progress. Humans have been harnessing the power of the wind for thousands of years. The beauty and efficacy of that timeless and ingenious process inspired the creative team at Cirque Mechanics to create Zephyr, a theatrical circus show that harnesses human power, instead of wind, to generate an energetic acrobatic experience. Cirque Mechanics has designed and built a performance windmill to serve as the multifunctional mechanical centerpiece of our story. Mounted on a turntable, the windmill combines both modern and older more picturesque elements – with the transformation from one aspect to another providing a change of scenery in real time.
