Tuesday To-Do: 'The Aluminum Show'

'THE ALUMINUM SHOW'
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $22.80-$55.15.

This is some strange stuff. Also: unbelievable and also, admittedly, a lot more compelling than I expected before diving into this write-up. The plot, I understand, is that a piece of flexible aluminum tubing (think air duct) is born, loses its parents and sets forth on a journey through other metals to find them.

But the visuals, part modern dance, part acrobatics, part "ooh, shiny," are dazzling in the same style of "Stomp" or "The Blue Man Group."

If you've been itching for a spectacle, look no further. The troupe stays in Robinson for a three-day stint, continuing Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
