Weekend Watch: Cirque Ziva tumbles into town for a show tonight at the Fargo Theatre

FARGO - You’ve had some chills to ring in the New Year, so how about some thrills?

Cirque Ziva rolls, folds, flies and tumbles into town for a show tonight at the Fargo Theatre.

For more than 30 years, the Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats have been bringing their centuries-old gymnastics to towns across the country, adding new twists throughout the years.

Different from Cirque du Soleil shows, which feature a variety of physical and vocal performers, Golden Dragon Acrobats’ newest show, Cirque Ziva, is all about the acrobats, all trained from childhood.

The two-hour production features a mix of solo and group feats, from foot juggling to balancing acts, both single and ensemble contortionists.

The first act starts rolling with a human wheel and ends with ball and hat juggling giving way to a group unicycle ride.

Stay around for the second act, which winds down with the death-defying tower of chairs.

With theatrical staging and Broadway lighting, the Fargo Theatre will host a visual treat tonight and a great way to warm up to 2014.
