Blending the ancient tradition of acrobatics with the flowing theatrical elements of dance, aesthetic stage lighting and sound, the Cirque Chinois is one of the most distinguished circus troupes in the world. The company of 45 acrobats, contortionists, trapeze artists, jugglers and dramatists has won over 20 Gold and Silver medals at International circus festivals throughout Asia and Europe. Contributions the company has made to the world of the circus society is profound. The Cirque Chinois is directly credited with changing the western perception of circus arts to that of the deeply aesthetic “non-animal circus” tradition of China. The artful display of physical and mental acuity, immense athletic strength, balance and timing richly imbue a harmonic focus of mind and body through theatrical, character-driven athletic feats. This is the company that inspired and directly coached the pioneers of the awesome “Cirque du Soleil.”
A number of gravity and injury defying acts, each individual performer’s poised movement supports that of the troupe’s fellow members in displays of acrobatics, high-flying trapeze, aerial balance, dance, juggling and comedy!.
