The New Chinese Acrobats

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2018

Venue Matthews Theatre

OVERVIEW

Plate spinning! Bowl balancing! Pole Climbing! Created in association with the world-famous Cirque Éloize company, the New Chinese Acrobats represent the next step in the evolution of acrobatic companies from the East. Mixing new techniques and acts with ancient traditions, their performance represents the best of China’s ancient folk art mixed with a modern kaleidoscope of movement that defies laws of body mechanics and physics. Accompanied by live music, this troupe of gymnasts, jugglers, acrobats, and tumblers will leave family audiences spellbound with their daring demonstrations of strength, agility, balance, grace, and unique artistry.
