Fleet-footed miners and limber-toed ladies dance on chandeliers and leap over moving ore carts in Cirque Mechanics' latest production of acrobatic antics and aerial dance. Set in the small 1860s frontier town of Rosebud, Boom Town portrays the lives, feuds, brawls, romances, and shocking discoveries uncovered in this Wild West whistle stop at the height of the gold rush. The scenery becomes launching pads as performers climb up swaying telegraph poles, fly high and fast on a revolving crane, balance themselves on whiskey jugs, or play chicken against the fourth wall.
After the success of the acrobatic showstopper Birdhouse Factory, Cirque Mechanics' latest production explores the relationship between man and machine while creating a world of gravity-eschewing dance and physical expression.
Stake your claim on a continental-style seat in Ruth Eckerd Hall, where inspired engineering coupled with comfortable amenities transports audiences into a stunning world of full-stage views and outstanding acoustics. A stage-level ticket puts the irregular circus action within a squeak of a rubber nose, and the rest-of-the-house option provides a complete viewing of the stage, immersing patrons in the acrobatic antics, without them having to stow away in a cream-pie stage locker.
