There is no better way to celebrate the beginning of the Chinese new year than at the explosive and fascinating Chinese State Circus next week.

The show presents multi-talented Yin Yang and the formidable Shaolin Warrior known only as The One, sourced specifically by director Phillip Gandey.

A cicrcus spokesman says: “This unique extravaganza showcases only the best in entertainment; witness acrobats defying gravity in an array of elaborate, explosive and highly choreographed presentations of power, poise and agility.

“Yin Yang will not only keep the audience on the edge of their seats but show the more delicate and beautiful side of Chinese tradition with plate spinning, parasol juggling, eye catching Lion Dance and the amazing legendary Bicycle Act in which 10 talented artistes manoeuvre on to a single bicycle.”

The show also promises a remarkable ballet fusion performance from the Oriental Swan Witness, dynamic hoop divers with amazing somersaults, leaps and jumps.

Every sensational act flows into sensational act without narrative and accompanied by a captivating and atmospheric all girl-group of live musicians.

The spokesman adds: “The Chinese State Circus brings the oriental magic to a venue near you. It is suitable for an audience of all ages, with evocative sets, soaring musical score and extravagant new costumes that will entertain the entire family long after the final curtain falls.

“Don’t miss this stunning production that features the most daring, breath-taking and thrilling artistes to tour the UK.”
