The New Shanghai Circus will feature a troupe of amazing acrobats
from China. The art of Chinese acrobatics developed out of the Lunar New Year harvest celebrations, where the village’s peasants and craftsmen would hold a kind of Chinese Thanksgiving. Acrobats would use household tools and common items found around the farm and workshop as part of their exciting feats. Performers passed their skills down from generation to generation and great acrobatic families of China entertained everyone from city rulers to village people. At present, there are over 120 professional acrobatic troupes across China, and more than 12,000 performers.
