New Shanghai Circus - St. George Theatre
March 24, 2019 - Staten Island

Astonishing athletes defy gravity and execute breathtaking feats as they stretch the limits of human ability in this spellbinding show that draws upon 2,000 years of Chinese circus traditions. If it's humanly possible – and even if it seems as if it's not – these acrobats, jugglers and contortionists do it with spectacular flair! The Chinese acrobatic tradition dates back to 700 B.C.; that's over 2,000 years of tumbling, balancing and juggling. Ancient stone carvings, earthen pottery and early written work trace the ancestry of today's spectacular acts. Relics tell the tales of famous acrobats like Confucius' father, who is believed to have lifted a pair of 1,000-pound city gates to let an army storm through.
