I saw Chinese acrobats in Shanghai in 2007. They were fabulous. For breathtaking contortions and unbelievable feats, this show looks like a winner:

Since 1958, this troupe of talented diplomats of their amazing culture has been performing the ancient folk art, acrobatics, for audiences the world over. Hailing from the People’s Republic of China and carefully selected from the best acrobatic schools these gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists, and tumblers transform 2000-year-old athletic disciplines into exciting entertainment for all-ages.

The Peking Acrobats made their western debut in 1986. With gravity-defying contortion, dangerous wire-walking, trick-cycling and daring chair maneuvers, this group of acrobats keeps audience at the edge of their seat. They mix traditional Chinese instruments with high-tech special effects.

The inspiring stunts and eye-popping tricks of the Peking Acrobats are not to be missed. They will be taking timeless tradition and putting a bit of modern flair in it. The Peking Acrobats have been wowing audiences for years and will surely continue in years to come.
