Chinese State Circus
The Chinese State Circus has a characteristically quiet charm. The level of skill is so phenomenally high that any razzamatazz gloss is redundant. These distinctively Chinese performance arts are thousands of years old yet they still retain the capacity to entertain in this third millennium. The creator and producer of the Chinese State Circus, Phillip Gandey constantly brings forth new ideas in the art of circus and physical theatre. The Chinese State Circus is internationally recognised as the benchmark for acrobatic achievement and innovation. They not only develop and reform the art itself, but also draw on the experience and elements of other disciplines. Sport has close connections with acrobatics and circus. Most of the basic techniques of the Chinese acrobatics originate from jumping, summersaults and balancing.

Ever since the first Emperor of China, Quin Shi Huang, held a ceremony on the summit to proclaim the unity of his empire two thousand years ago, Mount Tai has attracted poets, writers, scholars, politicians and warriors - each in search of tranquility, enlightenment and personal fulfillment. It is now one of the principal tourist areas where visitors can enjoy a kaleidoscope of natural scenery and historical remains.

In Tai An City, the Acrobatic Troupe has developed and flourished. Since China was opened to the world, the troupe has become very active and competitive both in China and abroad. For two years its artistes have been attracting wide acclaim from domestic and foreign audiences in Shanghai. The troupe has also toured many countries including USA, Canada, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Japan, Korea and Singapore. Their success lies in blending the purest tradition of the Chinese acrobatics with startling and creative innovation. You will be amazed, thrilled and delighted by 'Swinging Poles', 'Hula-Hula' and '8 Girls and 1 Boy on a Bike' appearing for the first time in the UK. 'Diablos', 'Spinning Plates' and 'Hoop Diving' are taken to new heights of artistic and physical realisation. And the Chinese State Circus would not be complete without that most traditional of complex ensemble acrobatic disciplines - The Lion Dance.
