As winter picks up its pace, the arts scene does a few tricks.

Photographers, acrobats, thespians and cavemen prowl the Front

Range.

Dmitri Baltermants was a photographer for over five decades in

the former Soviet Union. His work is on display at CSU’s Hatton

Gallery, depicting all levels of Soviet life, from factory workers

to soldiers and war pictures to portraits of high-ranking

officials.

These historical works will be on display through March 5.

Not only do Baltermants’s pictures clearly display the life and

times of Soviet Russia, but this collection also demonstrates the

skills of a truly artful photographer.

Admission to the Hatton Gallery is free and gallery times are 9

a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Ancient Chinese delights are in store this Friday at the

Cheyenne Civic Center’s Performing Arts Theater as “The Shanghai

Circus” pulls into town. Performed for over 2000 years, feats of

balance, acrobatics and juggling are center stage as twenty

acrobats entertain the old and young.

An alternative to the normal ho-hum performance, the Shanghai

Circus puts their skills on the line for an evening of fun and

entertainment. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Friday. The show lasts one

night only.

Showing through Saturday, the play “Proof” is on stage at the

Lincoln Center. “Proof” is Denise Burson Freestone’s most recent

directing endeavor and explores the relationships between people

and the trusting of a genius with everyday feelings.

“Proof” closes this weekend, with performances on Friday and

Saturday at the Lincoln Center at 8 p.m. Winner of the Pulitzer

Prize for Theatre and the Tony Award for Best New Play this play is

a fresh new work aimed at exploring the interaction between love

and trust. Tickets are $18 for adults and $14 for students and

seniors.

Coming to the Lincoln Center this February, Rob Becker’s

“Defending the Caveman” will explore the differences between man

and his loving counterpart, woman. Part of the Lincoln Center’s

Showstopper Series, and hailed by critics as a comic phenomenon,

“Caveman” is sure to tickle anyone’s funny bone. “Defending the

Caveman” was the longest running solo play in Broadway history and

the laughter it produces proves why. The play will show at 7:30

p.m. Feb. 9 through Feb. 12, with a matinee showing Feb. 11 at 2:30

p.m. Ticket prices are $34 and $32.
