Not to be confused with the decades-old French Canadian Cirque shows, this company of artists starring the Golden Dragon Acrobats of China is breathtaking in its own right. See twenty people in flowing robes on a bike; slight men and women scaling towers of chairs and unfurling their bodies as a spire; giant rolling wheels of neon-colored contortionists; spritely hat jugglers, and a gaggle of girls dangling from ropes in the air in what is hailed as 25 centuries of grace, power, daring, skill, beauty and athleticism. All thats missing is half a dozen plate-spinning dreamboats. Oh, wait, they have those, too!
