Now Which One's My Head?

Being unnaturally smart gets you into college, being unnaturally fast gets you into the Olympics, but being unnaturally flexible usually gets you the midnight show behind a thick sheet of Plexiglas. Or, better still, a place in a troupe such as the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats. It's a lot of balance, a lot of contortion and a bit of kung fu. It's the Way of the Pretzel. It's the Eastern answer to the West's insistence on making bears balance on balls, which , I mean, really. Come on. These plate-spinning, gravity-defying acrobats come to the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 10 a.m. ($10) and 7 p.m. ($30). 2880 Mountain Road. Call 261-ARTS or visit www.artsglenallen.com.
