The Golden Dragon Acrobats, who perform tonight at the Miramar Cultural Center (2400 Civic Center Place, Miramar), combine those historic threads and traditional props with a sense of lighthearted modernism. Dancers spin dozens of plates far above their heads with the ease of a child toting a bundle of balloons. Wheels morph into cog-like playgrounds; ladders grow human appendages; and feats of strength are performed with flawless poise. The Golden Dragons prove that a night out can provide jaw-dropping entertainment and bring history to life. Tonights performance is at 7, and tickets range $15 to $35.
