    The Peking Acrobats have been called “incredible,” “breathtaking,” “stunning,” and “quite unbelievable,” to quote but a few of the critics. As a special treat for the 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 events 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!”

    The tremendous response of the audience is a testament to the popularity of their unique brand of artistry, which transcends time to delight people of all ages.
