THEATRE | "Cirque Peking" 

On Sunday, November 16, the Nazareth College Arts Center will present the National Acrobats of the People's Republic of China performance of "Cirque Peking." Hailing from Beijing, the company performs worldwide and is one of the most acclaimed acrobatic troupes in China. Founded in 1951, the troupe has spent decades developing a unique act that combines ballet, tumbling, contortion, plate-spinning, juggling, and other world famous stunts like the "Global Motorcycle" and "Aerial Bungee Tumblings." The national Acrobats' new act, "Cirque Peking," is a new production combining traditional and modern music, vibrant costumes, colorful sets, and new stunts, such as the "Chinese Poles in Shaolin Style" and "Diving through Moving Hoops."

The National Acrobats will perform in Callahan Theater at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. 7 p.m. $55-$70. A free pre-performance lecture on the history and importance of acrobatics in China will be held at 6 p.m. in the Peace Theater (room A14), located in the lower level of the Arts Center. 389-2170;
