Do you remember that squirrelly kid in your third-grade class who would always do backflips and crazy tricks on the monkey bars? Well, he grew up and joined a circus, of sorts. The flipping fantastic performers of Wise Fool New Mexico are in town for three nights to entertain you with stilt acrobatics, dynamic dangling, and high-flying performances. The Flexion: World Premier has the right mix of dance, theater, and aerial circus stunts to inspire children to go home and jump on the bed and then beg for a trampoline. Performances will be held outside the Carnival Center on the Thomson Plaza for the Arts.
Thu., Jan. 4, 10 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 6
