Chi of Shaolin-The Tale of the Dragon
By Joe Martone
Honestly, we’re a little surprised you’re not just sold on the title alone. The Imperial Acrobats of China have arrived in the West and they’re making a stop in Riverside. The show combines the forces of Chinese acrobat and gold medalist Yan Yan Zhao and Cirque Du Soleil producer Guy Caron in an effort to create an unforgettable experience. The show is filled to the brim with high flying acts, dazzling spectacles, insane choreography and physical displays that quite simply defy explanation. Like most Cirque style productions, there is a plot to guide the show along but the fable pales in comparison to what your eyes will behold. In a nice bonus, the show is appropriate for all ages, so the whole family can look on in shared awe and amazement as well. This performance is for one night and one night only, so grab those tickets while you still can.
Fox Performing Arts Center, 3801 Mission Inn Ave., Riverside, (951) 779-9800, www.foxriversidelive.com. 8pm. $20-$45.
