A Chinese Twist

The Golden Dragon Acrobats spin from ropes, flip through hoops, balance umbrellas on their toes, and leap like cats. The traveling troupe of Chinese acrobats, seemingly made of rubber, twist and turn and contort in ways you never will, or would want to. The acrobats learn the tricks of the trade as kids in China, and execute them with a precision and grace that seems second nature. The show mixes the 25-century-old acrobatic tradition with a heavy dose of Las Vegas flamboyance, most notably the heart-racing techno music ubiquitous at Sin City nightclubs. 2,500 years is a long time to perfect anything, and the Golden Dragon Acrobats have it down to an art. The troupe swings into Fort Worth Monday. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun Streets. Tickets are $33. Call 877-212-4280 or visit basshall.com.
Mon., Nov. 8, 6:30 p.m., 2010
