▪ Get ready to experience Shen Yun, a colorful spectacle that combines Eastern and Western sensibilities of music and classical dance against breathtaking sets. Shen Yun Performing Arts grew out of the philosophy of Falun Dafa, a spiritual practice that blends Buddhist meditation and qigong. The show presents stunning displays of physicality and art that seek to revive ancient traditions lost during the 20th century after the takeover by the Chinese Communist Party.
The renowned international Golden Dragon Acrobats will sweep through the Treasure Valley again with its dazzling “Cirque Ziva” as part of Caldwell Fine Arts’ season. This is an all-out showcase of the ancient Chinese acrobatic arts. With colorful costumes, traditional and contemporary music and electric theatricality, you’ll see breathtaking physical skill and heart-stopping feats as these artists balance on bicycles, flip through hoops and fly through the air.
7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, Jewett Auditorium, College of Idaho, 2112 E. Cleveland Blvd., Caldwell. $20-$30 general, $10-$20 children. 459-5275, CaldwellFineArts.org.
