China Photos: Amazing Acrobatics

    "Acrobatics have been part of Chinese since 2500 years ago. Evolving with time, the performance today is much more dramatic and colorful, assisted by the high-tech stage designs and lighting effects. But the essence of the technical and creative artistry remains the same. China Acrobatics Troupe is among the best in China, and its circuses play all over the world and have won many international gold awards. China Acrobatics Troupes perform daily at Universal Theater (tian di ju chang) and Chaoyang Theater (chao yang ju chang)."
