Performance: The Peking Acrobats
Direct from the People's Republic of China, the Peking Acrobats leave audiences spellbound with their thrilling presentation of ancient folk arts.
“…surreal, defying laws of body mechanics and physics” – Dance Insider Direct from China, the Peking Acrobats—the largest and most acclaimed group of its kind—have for more than 50 years held audiences spellbound with vibrant presentations of their ancient folk art. Carefully selected from the finest acrobat schools in China, these expert gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists, and tumblers transform 2,000-year-old athletic disciplines into a family-friendly kaleidoscope of eye-popping wonder. The performance features live musical accompaniment from an accomplished Chinese ensemble, and promises to range "from the seemingly impossible to the virtually unbelievable" (Los Angeles Times).
