The internationally renowned Chinese State Circus has returned. Bringing you a spectacular new production, it has gone back to its roots and is not to be missed
Thirty world-class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes and jugglers will be providing non stop action at Orsett Showground from Tuesday 18th to Sunday 23rd April in its fully heated big top venue.
Taking an art form that has thrilled audiences for more than 2,000 years. Dynasty transforms ordinary, everyday objects into unbelievable acrobatic equipment to thrill the modern audience. Hurtling porcelain jars... spinning plates...balancing upon gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs framed by the delicate strands of silk supporting cascading aerialists.
Sit back and marvel at how the world class Chinese acrobats combine their skills with the super-human physical talents and dexterity of the masters of martial arts – the legendary Shaolin Warriors.
There will be nonstop action from start to finish as thrill follows thrill with everything set to a soaring musical score accompanied by the rhythmic beats of Chinese percussion.
“No gimmicks...no fakes...no retakes...quite simply...the incomparable Chinese State Circus.”
