HOUGHTON -- Bring the whole family to the Rozsa Center at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, Mar. 29, to see the amazing PEKING ACROBATS®! The Copper Country audience will be treated to feats of acrobatic grace and agility, thrilled by high-wire walking, trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics.
Since 1958, this elite group has toured the world over, leaving audiences spellbound by the graceful presentation of their ancient folk art, acrobatics. Carefully selected from the finest acrobat schools in China, these gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists and tumblers transform 2000-year-old athletic disciplines into an all-ages kaleidoscope of entertainment and wonder.
Since their Western debut in 1986, THE PEKING ACROBATS® have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. They push the envelope of human possibility with astonishing juggling dexterity and incredible balancing feats, showcasing tremendous skill and ability.
The performers are often accompanied by live musicians skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects that coalesce with the music and awe-inspiring feats to create an exuberant entertainment event featuring all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival! 2011 marks the 25th Anniversary of THE PEKING ACROBATS® touring North America.
