Cir­cus feats, like fly­ing through the air on a trapeze and turn­ing half a dozen back flips in a row, can seem al­most like magic in their fluid grace — but the truth is that ev­ery such move looks easy only af­ter years of prac­tice. In The Ups and Downs: A Recipe for pre­sented by Wise Fool New Mex­ico, 29 lo­cal am­a­teur cir­cus artists of all ages show­case their bur­geon­ing skills in ae­rial ac­ro­bat­ics, stilt-walk­ing, and more in a mash-up of per­spec­tives chore­ographed to sym­bol­ize the macro­cosm and mi­cro­cosm of hu­man per­cep­tion. Per­for­mances at Wise Fool’s stu­dio (1131-B Siler Road) take place on Fri­day, April 28, at 7 p.m., Satur­day, April 29, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sun­day, April 30, at 4 p.m. Tick­ets, $20 with dis­counts avail­able, can be pur­chased by vis­it­ing www.wise­fool­newmex­ — Jen­nifer Levin
