Australia’s Circa troupe is springing onto the Hancher stage with two very different shows. First up is “Carnival of the Animals,” inspired by Camille Saint-Saens’s suite of the same name. Acrobats — with a little help from whimsical projections — will romp through the animal kingdom while showing off their circus skills in two family-friendly shows Saturday. On Wednesday, the Debussy String Quartet will join them for an evening of thought-provoking artistry to the music of Dmitri Shostakovich.

“Carnival of the Animals”: 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday (4/21), Hancher Auditorium, 141 E. Park Rd., Iowa City; $10 to $40
