Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Chinese State Circus is a touring circus that aims to present Chinese circus arts to European audiences. The show is based on Chinese acrobatic acts. All the performers come from China and are trained in the Chinese tradition of Ma Xi, or hippodrama (horse theatre). The show combines kung fu martial arts from the Shaolin Temple, artists from the Peking Opera and other Chinese speciality acts. Continuity is provided by the figure of the Monkey King who appears between acts. The show also includes a lion dance, plate spinners, diabolos, aerial silks and an excerpt from the Chinese opera.show more
