A performance not to be missed, this acrobatics show presented by the Shanghai Acrobatics Troupe will captivate audiences both young and old. Acrobats display stunning feats of physical strength, balance, and skill as they juggle large porcelain urns with their feet, spin stacks of plates with ease, and tumble through the air.
With a mission to bring back the grandeur and pageantry to the circus, the Shanghai Acrobatics Troupe dedicated themselves to pushing the boundaries of acrobatic technique. Their success was solidified after winning the gold medal in the National Acrobatics contest for their signature trick, known as the Flying Trapeze.
