Wild circus of stunts and machines hitting city

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.

SHOWBIZ takes centre stage

It's showtime at big meeting venues these days. But the Lion City is holding the main event after bringing a hit musical version of one of Disney's best-loved creations to town.

Marina Bay Sands (MBS) in Singapore has set the stage for productions such as The Lion King, which opened at the resort's 1,680-seat Sands Theatre last month.

On a high

Not so long ago, circus artists led nomadic lives, going from one city to the next. But modern circus has evolved into permanent shows, which means performers can stay in the same city for a few years.

Cirque du Soleil was founded in 1984 and made a name for itself in the 1990s with its brand of animal-free circus. The Canadian troupe proved its worth in its own country, and was soon touring the world with its unique performances.

The circus

Chariot races

Today, the circus is a travelling show with animals, acrobats, clowns and other performers. Shows take place in a tent, called the 'big top'. The original circuses of Europe were in stadiums - the biggest were in ancient Rome. The word circus comes from the Latin word for 'circle' or 'ring'. Today, the 'ring' is the area in which circus acts are performed.
