World Stage

Peking Acrobats

January 24 & 25, 2015


Family Friendly! Ages 16 and under half price!

A troupe of China's most gifted tumblers, contortionists, jugglers, and gymnasts, the Peking Acrobats return to Zellerbach by popular demand, with spellbinding feats and daring maneuvers steeped in 2,000 years of folk tradition. In vibrant costumes and accompanied by live musicians on Chinese folk instruments, the rigorously trained acrobats dazzle with their tremendous agility and grace, as well as spectacular company numbers involving trick cycling, powerful precision tumbling, and other cringe-worthy maneuvers.
