The word "awesome" gets tossed around pretty loosely - but here's an evening that really earns that description. Ancient acrobatic traditions meet 21st century stagecraft with this elite group of gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists and tumblers from the People's Republic of China, along with JIGU! Thunder Drums of China. This daring demonstration of strength, balance and agility has hypnotized audiences around the globe.
Since their Western debut in 1986, the astounding Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of the ancient but ever-evolving art of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs. They are experts at treacherous wire-walking, trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting and gymnastics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control. The Peking Acrobats regularly push the envelope of human possibility with astonishing dexterity and skill.
Accompanied by live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments and backed by high-tech stage effects, this troupe brings an exuberant entertainment that captures all the pageantry and spectacle of a modern-day Chinese theatrical circus. It's a performance guaranteed to inspire wonder in children and adults alike.
