Cirque Ziva Golden Dragon Acrobats
Wowing audiences across the world since 1967, the Golden Dragon Acrobats are widely recognized as the preeminent Chinese acrobatic company in the US. Drawing their costumes and choreography from the last 2,000 years of Chinese history, they make centuries-old traditions seem futuristic. “There is a precision and beauty about everything they do,” says the Washington Post, and all of that grace is on display in their latest showcase, Cirque Ziva. With a fresh cast pulled from global acrobatic competitions, Cirque Ziva floods the stage with breathtaking physicality. Shrouded in stunning sets that accentuate their movements, the performers delight audiences and make chiropractors drool as they balance atop human ladders, catapult through the air onto each others’ heads, and become human wheels.
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
