Since their Western debut in 1986, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; they are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics all while being complemented by live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments.
The Peking Acrobats have been featured on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV Specials including Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous, Ellen’s Really Big Show (TV Special with host, Ellen DeGeneres), The Wayne Brady Show, That’s Incredible, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, as well as NBC’s Ring in the New Year Holiday Special.
On their previous Twenty-Seven North American tours, they have sold out theatres, performing arts centers, and arenas across the continent. Audiences who have seen The Peking Acrobats on these tours are astounded and amazed by the talents of these incredible performers. The Peking Acrobats transports audiences to another realm, where they enjoy an entertainment event unlike any other and one they won’t soon forget!
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. The Peking Acrobats alumnus Shaobo Qin also appeared in that film’s two sequels, Ocean’s 12 and Ocean’s 13.
As part of their 25th Silver Anniversary Tour, in April 2011, The Peking Acrobats were filmed live in concert by Center City Film & Television for NBC/Comcast’s new 3D Television Channel! The Peking Acrobats are proud to once again be on the cutting edge of entertainment technology. Their 3D Television Special, featuring The Peking Acrobats in performance, and including interviews with the show’s Producers, Cast, and Crew, is now airing on NBC/Comcast’s 3D Television Channel. Fans should check their local listings to catch this new 3D TV Special and experience The Peking Acrobats like never before!
A performance by The Peking Acrobats brings with it the opportunity to view the epitome of a rich and ancient folk art tradition, highlighted by today’s technology melding the ancient and traditional with the modern wonders of the 21st Century. As the Seattle Times reports: “Nearly everything The Peking Acrobats® did last night was amazing – and stunning, and breathtaking and WOW!” and Clive Davis of the New York Post sums it up thusly: ” The Peking Acrobats [are] pushing the envelope of human possibility. Pure artistry!”
