In college I volunteered my time with the Michigan Tech Student Entertainment Board – one event that was well received was the Peking Acrobats. This event is now coming to Phoenix and I’m very excited!
When: January 18, 2013
Comerica Theatre at 8 pm
Since their Western debut in 1986, THE PEKING ACROBATS® have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; they are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. They push the envelope of human possibility with astonishing juggling dexterity and incredible balancing feats, showcasing tremendous skill and ability. They are masters of agility and grace. Often accompanied by live musicians skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects that coalesce with the music and awe-inspiring feats to create an exuberant entertainment event featuring all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival!..tickets are now on sale! at http://concerts.
THE PEKING ACROBATS have been featured on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV Specials including NICKELODEON’S UNFABULOUS, ELLEN’S REALLY BIG SHOW (TV Special with host, Ellen DeGeneres), THE WAYNE BRADY SHOW, THAT’S INCREDIBLE, ABC’S WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS as well as NBC’s RING IN THE NEW YEAR HOLIDAY SPECIAL. THE PEKING ACROBATS are on the cutting edge of technology, having appeared on HDNET TV’S IN FOCUS SERIES. Since Summer 2011, they have appeared regularly in 3D on NBC/Comcast’s new 3D Channel! THE PEKING ACROBATS are excited and honored to have been selected by HDNet and NBC/Comcast to be among the first performing ensembles of their kind to participate in such innovative technologies as the high definition and 3D television formats. These appearances reaffirm THE PEKING ACROBATS commitment to bringing their unique and ancient art form and tradition into the 21st Century!
Since my children love tumbling I know they’ll love it!
