THE Chinese State Circus will perform its sensational new show ‘Yin Yang’ at The Cresset in Peterborough on Monday and Tuesday, February 11 and 12.
During this unique extravaganza, the audience can witness acrobats defying gravity in an array of elaborate, explosive and highly choreographed presentations of power, poise and agility.
‘Yin Yang’ will not only keep the audience on the edge of their seats but show the more delicate and beautiful side of Chinese tradition with plate spinning, parasol juggling, the eye catching Lion Dance and the amazing legendary ‘Bicycle Act’ in which 10 talented artists manoeuvre onto a single bicycle.
A remarkable treasure of physical theatre and the You Tube and internet sensation; ‘The Oriental Swan’ is a breath taking fusion of ballet, physical strength, balance and inspiring creativity. In a breath taking display of grace and poise a ballerina pirouettes on the shoulder of her partner then dances on pointe on his head and shoulders, truly making this performance an aerial ballet.
The show also includes foot juggling with drums, the famous Chinese poles, a sensational contortionist, and dynamic hoop divers with amazing somersaults, leaps and jumps.
The show is suitable for an audience of all ages, with evocative sets, a soaring musical score and extravagant new costumes that will entertain the entire family long after the final curtain falls.
There are performances both days at 8pm, and also a 5pm show on February 12. Tickets cost £22, contact 01733 265705.
