“. . . AT NO TIME HAVE WE SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THE PEKING ACROBATS. FEATS OF CLOWNING, DEXTERITY, GRACE, STRENGTH, AND COORDINATION RIPPLED FROM THE STAGE IN A SERIES OF PLEASURABLE WAVES. ONE WAS LEFT WATERLOGGED IN WONDER.” —CHICAGO TRIBUNE

The high-flying thrills and awe-inspiring stunts of The Peking Acrobats have dazzled audiences in the United States for more than two decades, ever since the troupe’s Western debut in 1986. This entertaining, all-ages spectacle thrills with astounding feats of mind-boggling talent, a modern twist on ancient Chinese techniques spanning 2,000 years of history. 

The troupe’s gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists, and tumblers blend ancient tradition with modern-day stagecraft for a wild, unforgettable journey of the Far East. 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. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. 

They push the envelope of human possibility with astonishing juggling dexterity and incredible balancing feats, showcasing tremendous skill and ability. They are masters of agility and grace. Often accompanied by live musicians skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects that coalesce with the music and awe-inspiring feats to create an exuberant entertainment event featuring all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival.


Renowned for their grace, artistry and feats of seemingly impossible physical daring, perennial favorites The Peking Acrobats are a marvel to behold.
