Oh, the Urbanity!

Since SoFla strippers are adept at defying gravity in oh-so-many ways, it takes a lot to impress folks ‘round here. But when Cirque du Soleil comes to town, all bets are off. Each show offers vivid costumes, intense musical scores, and acrobats who lack fear and possess elastic cartilage. Saltimbanco, which premiered in Montreal in April of 1992, is no exception. The theme of the show, as described by the show’s senior artistic director Richard Dagenais, is to “explore the positive side of the effect urbanization has on us people as individuals” and encounters one would have in a city. But even if all that imagery escapes you, well, let’s just say the trapeze, balancing, and juggling acts are super neato, anyway.

Experience the true definition of urban sprawl at the BankAtlantic Center, at 1 Panther Pkwy. in Sunrise. Tickets cost $28 to $90. Performances run through June 7. For showtimes, call 954-523-3309, or visit cirquedusoleil.com.
