Cirque Shanghai - Bai Xi

Event Date:

CIRQUE SHANGHAI- BAI XI is a visually spectacular production combining astounding Chinese acrobatics, fast-paced action, and contemporary staging. Dating back to the Han Dynasty more than 2000 years ago, Chinese acrobatic spectacles were first called "bai xi" meaning "100 amazing acts," in reference to the performers' seemingly limitless skills. These daring and beautiful feats were featured in command performances for China's emperors and have been passed down and enhanced through generations. Today, "Bai Xi" brings this on-stage wonder to 21st Century audiences via aerial acrobatics, plate spinning, contortion, balancing acts, hoop diving, martial arts, and more. All this is accompanied by state of the art computerized lighting and a fusion of exotic oriental and modern orchestration.
