Golden Dragon Acrobats: Cirque Ziva
The Golden Dragon Acrobats, natives of China, have grown their show for more than four decades, drawing from a tradition that extends more than 25 centuries back to create a nationally touring display of strength, dexterity, and poise. The New York Times says the performers “know how to keep topping themselves,” and they careen through a two-hour show packed with amazing spectacles and traditional dancing set to ancient and contemporary music. Holding four plates aloft on poles in each hand, a crew of spinners keeps their dishes circulating even when balancing upside down, whereas a contortionist remains stone-still to balance pyramids of champagne glasses on the bottom of her raised foot. Jumpsuit-clad acrobats climb into the centers of large hoops, coaxing them into stage-encircling rolls, and others assume gravity-defying poses atop towers of chairs and precarious ladders.<p>
Part of the Boise State University campus, the Morrison Center provides a panoramic view of the city and its scenic foothills. Inside the nonprofit venue, the stage hosts musicals, symphonies, dance, and standup, and the organization supports outreach programs that expose young people to the performing arts. <p>
