Remember the first time you saw someone do a backward somersault while whistling, drinking a glass of water balanced on his forehead, and plucking the strings of a ukulele? The first time is the one you always remember, isn’t it? Even so, Tomáš Kubίnek, born Czech, raised Canadian, manages to make this standard feat fresh and exciting.  And to add a touch of sobriety to the proceedings, he whirls above the McCallum Theatre stage, dangling from a bungee cord, looking like Mozart with bat wings! One note on theater etiquette: audiences have been heard to laugh occasionally during Mr. Kubίnek’s performance. Since he does not seem unduly disturbed by this phenomenon, the usual restrictions against merriment in the theater will be temporarily lifted for this performance.
