Flying Acrobatics in Beijing by Tim Ferber

This week’s feature is courtesy of Tim Ferber, who is an experienced traveler and lives around Northeast Asia.

Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to see a Chinese acrobatic show. I was never that interested in ‘Cirque du Soleil’, but I had seen the Shanghai acrobats on TV and for some reason that memory was left with me for ever. Little did I know, that I would get to see one of the most amazing acrobatic performances in the country. Although it was not the Shanghai Acrobats, but instead the Beijing Acrobatic Troupe.

The Flying Acrobatics Show is performed at the Chaoyang Theatre in Beijing. It features highly talented young acrobats from across the country with a cultural flavor to the ancient acrobatic art. I have no doubt in my mind, that anyone who is a fan of acrobatics will be as mesmerized as I was. This nightlife venue was a very popular, crowded with Chinese tourists as well as locals which much added to the original and high spirited atmosphere.

The performance was action packed with beautiful choreography, surreal music, and mind-boggling feats—powered by flexibility, grace, and stamina. These acrobats and circus performers even ride motorbikes, balance on precariously stacked chairs, throw spinning plates, and perform other extreme acts that have to be seen to be believed!

However, this show is not for the faint-hearted: the acts are a step ahead of the league with innovative, precise, and extremely dangerous feats—the hour-long shows it’s extreme side too with contortionist acts, dancing lions, fire stunts, high-wire stunts, and seemingly impossible feats.

Even thought I usually avoid touristic places on my travels, this prestigious show is simply worth it. In its less than two decades of existence, over three million foreign audiences have enjoyed the one-of-a-kind spectacle. Also the Chaoyang District where the theatre is located is an interesting, and buzzing place, with delicious restaurants and other interesting sites.

I think that any sojourn in Beijing is incomplete without a visit to the Chaoyang Theatre. Held a whopping three times a day, the Flying Acrobatics Show fills up fast; so if you plan to view the show, it is highly recommended you book your seats in advance. As a side note, I bought the DVD recording of the show as souvenir but it was not worth the money. Probably because nothing can really compete with seeing the Beijing Acrobats live on stage. Also I think they have a video trailer of the show on their website, so I recommend checking that out.
