Chalk it up to the benefits of a universal health care system, but the members of the Canadian contemporary circus troupe Cirque Eloize are capable of putting their bodies through some incredible feats of strength and agility — the kind of bendy, muscle-straining flips, jumps, twists and turns that would require immediate medical attention for the average citizen. Led by director Jeannot Painchaud, the group's latest work, “ID,” delves into the genres of break-dance graffiti art and hip-hop, incorporating its signature use of acrobatics, gymnastics and contortion in a dystopian urban stage setting. Having performed numerous times around the world, Cirque Eloize is scheduled to perform “ID” at the Modlin Center for the Performing Arts beginning Friday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m., continuing through Sunday, March 6. $8-$38.
