The Peking Acrobats
The Peking Acrobats soar onto stage prepared to astound audiences with gravity-defying stunts and spellbinding aerial antics. Since making their Western debut in 1986, the Chinese-based masters of marvel have helped infuse modern culture with their unique, ancient art form, sweeping across major U.S. television networks and swinging through venues worldwide. A live Chinese orchestra accompanies each gasp-worthy step with whimsical measures while colorfully costumed performers balance atop pencil-thin wires, ride elevated cycles, and contort their bodies into the phone numbers of ex-sweethearts. Elaborate stage props add striking visuals to the unfolding spectacle, backing jugglers and gymnasts with surprising twists throughout the show.<p>
The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts
Six resident companies, including the Kentucky Opera, the Louisville Ballet, and the Louisville Orchestra. Four awards from Kentucky Monthly magazine, crowning it “best venue” for live entertainment. Three theater spaces that showcase independent plays, Broadway musicals, and bluegrass bands. One place: The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. Here, a colorful array of stage shows join displays of visual art to form a creative hub that aims to enrich the local community. And that mission goes beyond the center’s walls and probably collection of secret passageways—its artists also contribute to educational programs that travel throughout Kentucky, inspiring students to express themselves through music and performance.
