Golden Dragon Acrobats to perform Cirque Ziva
ISU's Tilson Auditorium
Friday February 21, 2014
Dramatic acrobatics are coming to ISU’s Tilson Auditorium on February 21st. The critically acclaimed Golden Dragon Acrobats will perform their new show, Cirque Ziva, as part of Indiana State University’s Performing Arts Series, sponsored by Terre Haute Savings Bank.
Visually stunning, Cirque Ziva is a celebration of acrobatics at its finest. Performers display a fantastical precision and beauty, even while executing complex choreography. A spectacular set design and large cast allow the performance to highlight the Golden Dragon’s commitment to artistic merit and cultural exchange.
Founded in 1967 by Lien Chi Chang, the Golden Dragon Acrobats have performed all over the globe for more than 30 years. With a constant attention to artistic detail and high production values, the Golden Dragon Acrobats have been recognized as the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring company.
Performances are based on traditional Chinese acrobatic arts, developed over 2,500 years ago, but are designed to astonish even the most modern audience member. Cirque Ziva brings together the best of these techniques in a fast-paced and beautiful way.
In addition to the performance, audience members are invited to enjoy a culturally themed pre-event at 6:45pm in the lobby of Tilson Auditorium. Traditional Chinese songs and dances will be performed and Chinese snacks will be available to try. The pre-event is presented by the Chinese School of the Wabash Valley, and is free to audience members. The main performance will begin at 7:30 pm.
