The acrobatic show of Chaoyang Theatre in Beijing is really something that you will not find anywhere else. Rich tradition of acrobatics in China has reached its peak here, with incredible gymnastic acts, daring stunts and numerous whole-body juggling performances. This show will definitely leave you speechless, breathless and even with a bit of doubt about the authenticity of everything that you saw on the stage.
The show itself consists of different parts and what starts off as a simple dance performance which quickly turns into a breathtaking gymnastics act. Around half way into the show you will start to feel the first symptoms of disbelief and the feeling of hope for the acrobats to survive till the end. Do not be surprised if you tend to leave your eyes closed during most of the second part of the show!
Performing acrobats here really test the bounds of possibility, to say the least. They are definitely superb acrobats that dedicated their lives to more than 2,000 year old circus style of acrobatic shows that developed in China. Circus style of acrobatics shows – as opposed to the martial arts style, the second acrobatics style that was also developed in China – emphasize balance and extreme flexibility, together with amazing group coordination.
And this is exactly what you can expect to see in the acrobatics show in Chaoyang Theater– amazing solo performances that emphasize extreme flexibility and body strength, daring group acts that include everything from jumping, riding motorbikes and building human pyramids, to two or three person juggling acts.
A Touch of Traditional Chinese Culture
All you need to add to the mix is a bit of tradition. Show would not be as unique without a bit of traditional Chinese and Beijing culture. And I am not talking just about the old Chinese porcelain that is used in most of the juggling acts. No, old Chinese tradition can be felt throughout the whole show, from colourful costumes to the national music playing in the background.
So, embrace yourself for breathtaking, dangerous and unforgettable journey into the long lasting acrobatic tradition of China that can only be seen in the Chaoyang Theatre!
