The Lensic Performing Arts Center’s Spanish-style proscenium ushers in the acrobatic feats of Cirque Chinois, the National Circus of the People's Republic of China. Against rotating backdrops that flourish with brilliant hues, fire, and replicas of ancient buildings, performers front-flip through hoops and dangle, suspended, from ropes while donning elaborate costumes of feathers borrowed from the private collection of Big Bird. Visceral percussion and haunting vocals set the soundtrack to the event as the acrobats thrill onlookers with collective acts such as the Group Contortion and the Great Teeterboard.
