The Peking Acrobats®

February 18, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| Adult $20-$30 Student & youth $18

A troupe of China’s most gifted tumblers, contortionists, jugglers, cyclists and gymnasts bring the 2,000-year-old acrobatic tradition to life. The Peking Acrobats® create a Chinese carnival atmosphere that is fun for the entire family with festive pageantry; daring maneuvers; trick cycling; powerful precision tumbling, somersaults and gymnastics; amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control; and high-tech special effects. Live musicians, playing traditional Chinese instruments, will enhance the evening’s experience.

The acrobatic tradition in China has been around for 2,000 years. The Peking Acrobats® have redefined the Western image of acrobats since their debut in 1986 by seemingly defying gravity and the laws of physics with their incredible flexibility and strength. They trick-cycle, juggle, balance and tumble their way into the hearts of the viewers by showing their perfection of agility and grace.
