For Italian Acrobats: Something

A troupe of seven acrobats fuse circus, dance, theater and clowning into a comically effortless theatrical display that is fun, imaginative and colorful. The ensemble Liberi Di, from Italy, use simple scenes like reading a book or playing a game of poker as the jumping off point for some inventive and surreal silliness. They promise something for everyone in their mission to make the everyday extraordinary.  The show's run also includes an autism-friendly performance at 5 p. m. on April 2nd, World Autism Day, with specialists on hand to give support.
