The New Shanghai Circus



Back by popular demand, Yuma Heritage Events presents the New Shanghai Circus in the Historic Yuma Theatre, 254 S. Main Street, at 7 p.m. on TUESDAY, January 23.

This talented troupe continues to amaze audiences of all ages, bringing an all-new show to Yuma, Arizona. The company of 25 represents some of the finest gymnasts and acrobats from China, including many who have received gold, silver, and bronze medals in China's national competitions. Astonishing athletes defy gravity and execute breathtaking feats as they stretch the limits of human ability In this spellbinding show.

The show is a beautifully orchestrated presentation of Chinese circus acts dating back to harvest festivals of 2,000 years ago. This modern day performance is enhanced by fabulous choreography, amazing lighting, enchanting scenery, and powerful music. Audience members are enthralled by astounding contortionists, masterful acrobats, and clever comedians. They see feats of incredible skill and imagination. They gasp at many of the gravity-defying feats and applaud at the super-human displays of power and extraordinary grace. Under the direction of Zhao Lizhi, the artistry, individually and collectively, the New Shanghai Circus attains levels that make it seem almost unfair to single out any act, from jugglers to the comic knife throwers and the bicyclist who finishes by piling about 10 of his colleagues aboard his vehicle.

A quote from the New York Times reads: "The acrobats of China are one of the most unique and entertaining shows featuring breathtaking feats of strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, contortion, and magic. This show is lively entertainment for the whole family."
