WEST WORLD: In 'Saloon' Cirque Eloize stretch the body's possibilities to a Western theme.

While smaller in scale than that other French-Canadian troupe of acrobats, clowns and musicians currently in town, Cirque Eloize also uses these elements to tell a story through mind-bending acts of agility. Saloon features Korean plank, aerial straps and Cyr wheel acts set against a Wild West backdrop with songs by Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. For that authentic Western flavor, the show also features a juggler tossing beer bottles around a barroom and railroad workers doing somersaults while holding gigantic sledgehammers. Giddyup!

Cirque Éloize
Wed, 7:30pm, $29+
Hammer Theatre Center, San Jose
