A note regarding recent news around coronavirus: all members of the PEKING ACROBATS 2020 touring party have been in North America since late November 2019. None have returned to China since that time and none are from Wuhan nor have been in contact with anyone from that region.
For thirty-two years, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. Upholding a time-honored tradition rooted in centuries of Chinese history and folk art.
The newest generation of Peking Acrobats mixes high-tech special effects and awe-inspiring acrobatic feats with traditional Chinese music and instruments, creating an exuberant show with the festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival. They perform daring maneuvers and display their technical prowess with such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting and gymnastics, pushing the limits of human ability, and defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control. Prepare to be astounded by their bravery and dexterity when The Peking Acrobats return to Walton Arts Center!
