If wild machines in dramatic circus performances sound right up your street, then you're in for a treat at Cirque Mechanics' Birdhouse Factory show.

The circus troupe will perform for 15 shows, starting next month, at the Lyric Theatre at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in Wan Chai. We hear that among the sights on show, hundreds of birdhouses will be flying by.

First created by stuntman Chris Lashua in 2004, the show features veteran performers of Cirque du Soleil and the Moscow Circus. The show has toured in 70 cities in 11 countries.

CitySeen has two pairs of tickets to give away (retail price HK$595 per ticket). To win, e-mail your name, contact number, address and 'birdhouse' in the subject line to cityseen@scmp.com by 6pm next Wednesday, November 2.

The performances in Hong Kong will be from November 30 to December 11. Tickets are available at hkticketing.com.
