The Peking Acrobats perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; they are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. They push the envelope of human possibility with astonishing juggling dexterity and incredible balancing feats, showcasing tremendous skill and ability. They are masters of agility and grace. Often accompanied by live musicians skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects that coalesce with the music and awe-inspiring feats to create an exuberant entertainment event featuring all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival! At their many engagements THE PEKING ACROBATS celebrate over 30 years of awesome entertainment with their fans, young and old! THE PEKING ACROBATS have been featured on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV Specials. THE PEKING ACROBATS are on the cutting edge of technology, having appeared on HDNet TV'S In Focus Series. They appeared regularly in 3D on NBC/Comcast's new 3D Channel. THE PEKING ACROBATS were selected by HDNet and NBC/Comcast to be among the first performing ensembles of their kind to participate in such innovative technologies. These appearances reaffirm THE PEKING ACROBATS commitment to bringing their unique and ancient art form and cultural tradition into the 21st Century! They set the world record for the Human Chair Stack on Fox's GUINNESS BOOK PRIMETIME TV show where they astounded audiences with their bravery and dexterity as they balanced six people precariously atop six chairs 21 feet up in the air, without safety lines! THE PEKING ACROBATS are also making the scene on the silver screen as Company members were featured in Steven Soderbergh's hit film Ocean's 11 playing along with Hollywood's elite such as Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and George Clooney. PEKING ACROBATS' alumnus Shaobo Qin appeared in that film's three sequels, Ocean's 12 and Ocean's 13, and, he was featured in the ladies version, Oceans 8, featuring Saundra Bullock, Helena Bonham-Carter, and many other major film stars.
