This attraction has been called "incredible," "breathtaking," "stunning," and "quite unbelievable," to quote but a few
of the critics. As a special treat for fans of THE PEKING ACROBATS, this all new production now features performers
from THE SHANGHAI CIRCUS to create a very special Chinese Acrobatic extravaganza unlike any other!
The amalgamation of THE PEKING ACROBATS and THE SHANGHAI CIRCUS offers the unique talents and the very best of
both shows, suitable for playing arenas and concerts, fairs, theme parks, festivals, special and corporate events, and
casinos, in North America and the world over. With the addition of fresh elements from THE SHANGHAI CIRCUS, the
amalgamation of their incredible talents brings a whole new dimension to the ancient artistry of Chinese Acrobatics!
THE PEKING ACROBATS with THE SHANGHAI CIRCUS offers more than a glimpse into the fascinating traditions of the
Orient. It consists of sensational Chinese acrobatics, comedy, balancing feats and much more. A truly Oriental
spectacular and a show for all ages, the grace and precision of the acrobats are the triumph of years of dedicated
training and discipline. Chinese acrobatics are, in fact, more than just a series of stunts. Most of these acts clearly
demonstrate the achievement of perfection through finding harmony between mind and body - an ancient concept in
the Orient. The art form has been transformed from its simple “folk art” roots, to the spectacular entertainment event
we see today, by centuries of tradition.
THE PEKING ACROBATS new partners, THE SHANGHAI CIRCUS, have been entertaining audiences of all ages for over
thirty years in the United States including two six-week Broadway engagements. Recognized as being among the best
acrobatic shows that introduces young people to the magic of theatre, these acrobats were awarded Best Variety Show
in Branson, MO, due to their continual demonstration of the highest caliber of professional, trained athletes, jugglers
and contortionists. Their acts often trace their origins to traditional harvest festivals down through the centuries. It is
no wonder The New York Times reported, “THE SHANGHAI CIRCUS is providing entertainment in abundance!”
Each entertainer presents a range of demanding performances, most of them typifying the Chinese Circus and
consisting of a refreshing alternative to the usual Western traditions. From the dangerous climbing chair stack high
above the audience, about which the New York Times said, “these acrobats provide feats of circus art that reach
breathtaking heights of skill.” And just when you think you have seen it all, the highly skilled-roller skating duo takes
center stage with gravity defying feats of strength. All these and more surprises complete a marvelous and totally
exciting evening for theatre going “youngsters” from nine to ninety-two...As CBS News once reported “FANTASTIC!”
Over the years, company members of THE PEKING ACROBATS have toured throughout Europe, South and Central
America, Southeast Asia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Monte Carlo, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Israel and, of course,
extensively in the United States. The tremendous response of the audience is a testament to the popularity of their
unique brand of artistry, which transcends time to the delight of people of all ages!
