Cirque Mechanics, although inspired by modern circus, finds its roots in the mechanical and its heart in the stories of American ingenuity. Boom Town, inspired by the spirit of adventure of the American Gold Rush and the ingenuity of mining, tells a story of early western expansion with energy and humor.
