Having spent the Year of the Monkey tumbling, juggling, trick-cycling and wire-walking through an epic 30th anniversary tour, the Peking Acrobats are back on the road with a gravity-defying spectacle reminiscent of a Chinese carnival. Possibly known best for the six-person, 21-foot “human chair stack” that earned them a Guinness World Record back in 1999, the troupe routinely appears on TV shows and specials (from Ellen’s Really Big Show to the Hollywood Bowl) and famously launched gifted acrobat and contortionist Qin Shaobo onto the big screen via Steven Soderbergh’s 2001 Oceans Eleven reboot. Discovered while performing in Las Vegas, Shaobo reprised his role as Danny Ocean’s nimble “greaseman” in the sequels Oceans Twelve and Oceans Thirteen. Masters of “melding the ancient and traditional,” the Peking Acrobats return to the Alamo City courtesy of ARTS San Antonio. $29-$99, 7:30pm Fri, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Bryan Rindfuss
