INDIANAPOLIS — If you are looking to make some plans for the rest of the week or the weekend, Cirque du Soleil is in town.

The legendary acrobatic group is bringing its show "Crystal" to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Cirque du Soleil calls "Crystal" the first acrobatic performance on ice.

The group says the show is a journey into a whimsical frozen playground where figure skating mingles with acrobatics and aerial feats.

"I don't get nervous anymore,” one performer said. “But I always have this little excitement before the shows start. And in the show from me, you're going to see a couple of back flips, some triple jumps that I used to do in competition, and I'm pretty much the most flexible male skater in the world. So, I have a couple of unique tricks that I'll showcase that flexibility of mine."

Cirque du Soleil's "Crystal" will be at Bankers Life Fieldhouse through Sunday.

There will be eight performances total, with multiple shows on Saturday and Sunday.
