Featuring moves that would put even China’s many kung fu action stars to shame, Beijing’s acrobatic performances are a feast for the eyes – and give a pretty clear demonstration of what the less flexible had better not try at home.
The acrobatics, flexibility and balancing skills of the performers are guaranteed to keep viewers wide-eyed and on the edge of their seats for the entire show. Seemingly impossible feats include bicycle acrobatics (who ever thought that 12 people could fit onto one bicycle?!), disk rotating (combined with breathtaking acts of balancing, of course), circle jumping, contortion, diabolo acts, 3-actor acrobatics displaying incredible strength, springboard acrobatics, and much more.
From performers somersaulting from poles with astounding agility to others bending themselves into unbelievable positions as if it took no effort whatsoever, Beijing’s acrobatic shows offer a wide variety of amazing performances that are bound to keep even the hardest to please entertained for an hour or two.
