about this event
The Peking Acrobats defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. Accompanied by live musicians, they perform awe-inspiring acrobatic feats with high-tech special effects that have astounded audiences for generations.
The Peking Acrobats are part of a time-honored Chinese tradition, rooted in centuries of Chinese history and folk art. Tradition demands that each generation of acrobats add its own improvements and embellishments; because of this, high honor is conferred upon those skilled enough to become acrobats. The Peking Acrobats seek to uphold this rich and ancient folk art tradition, bringing it to new technical heights while integrating twenty-first-century technology.
