Caldwell Fine Arts presents Cirque Zíva acrobats

The College of Idaho and Caldwell Fine Arts are pleased to present the Golden Dragon Acrobats, direct from Broadway in Cirque Zíva. This all-ages show will dazzle with brilliant feats of athleticism and beauty, celebrating a centuries-old art form. The performance is set for Thursday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. in Jewett Auditorium on the C of I campus in Caldwell. Tickets start at $20 for adults or $10 for children and can be purchased at www.caldwellfinearts.org or by calling (208) 459-5275.

For three decades, the Golden Dragon Acrobats have performed in all fifty states, including numerous shows in Idaho. Community members may remember the sold-out performance of the Golden Dragon Acrobats during the 2010-2011 season of Caldwell Fine Arts. Cirque Zíva, the newest show from producer Danny Chang, was created for a 10-week engagement at Asbury Park Boardwalk’s Paramount Theatre on Broadway. It was an instant success, earning critical acclaim and packed houses. Cirque Zíva is a fast-paced, technically innovative, and beautifully presented new show that has received rave reviews from across the country. The New York Times also issued this warning: to patrons “This family-friendly show will dazzle the younger set but might also have them stacking up the dining room chairs and climbing the curtains when they get home.” So, don’t try this at home…but don’t miss your chance to see this stunning show!

Preceding the show at 6 p.m., community members can learn to write their name in Chinese characters inside the Jewett Pioneer Room. College of Idaho Staff, Faculty, and Students receive one free ticket for this exciting show. For more information, please contact Alison Moulton at (208) 459-5783 or [email protected].
