Just to be clear: Cirq'ulation Locale and Cirque du Soleil are completely different organizations, each with its own style and history. ''We are not related to Cirque du Soleil, although some of our acrobats work with them now,'' says Cirq rep Andrew Delicata. ''It is not similar at all. We combine high-level technique and theater just like them, but the style is completely different.'' Since 2002, the members of Cirq'ulation Locale, a ''crossover circus,'' have balanced, flipped, juggled, danced and contorted their way in venues across Europe. This performance marks the very first time the group plays Miller Outdoor Theatre. The show combines unique techniques such as a man-size ''Cyr'' wheel, light clubs and a trampoline wall, Delicata further explains.
8 p.m. Hermann Park, 6001 Fannin. For information, call 281‑373‑3386 or visit milleroutdoortheatre.com. Free.
