Breathtaking in its simplicity.......Low tech becomes hi tech.
“The most honest, awe-inspiring and exhilarating circus it has ever been my privilege to see” Evening Standard
CHINESE STATE CIRCUS
The internationally acclaimed Chinese State Circus is returning to the UK in 2016 by returning to its cultural roots in innovatively spectacular new production – “DYNASTY”.
Breathtaking in its simplicity, “DYNASTY” projects into a contemporary setting an art form that has thrilled audiences for more than 2,000 years where low-tech everyday objects are transformed into hi-tech acrobatic equipment. Hurtling porcelain jars....dynamically spinning plates... balancing upon gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs framed by the delicate strands of silk supporting cascading aerialists.
“Never has such excitement been generated in a theatre. The whole audience hangs breathless” - Manchester Evening News
Stunning world class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes and jugglers interact with the super-human physical skills and dexterity of the masters of martial arts – the legendary Shaolin Warriors.
The nonstop action from start to awesome finale as thrill follows thrill is set to a soaring musical score accompanied by the rhythmic beats of Chinese percussion. Incredible acrobatics that until now could only be created through special digital video effects– are performed live in front of an audience. What seems impossible becomes a reality earning the CHINESE STATE CIRCUS the accolade “incomparable”.
