Chinese State Circus at Chesterfield

IMG_5117ARTSBEAT CIRCUS: The incomparable Chinese State Circus show Yin Yang arrives at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield on March 8 for two days.

The highly awaited return of China’s greatest circus features the formidable Shaolin Warrior known only as “The One” sourced specifically by Director Phillip Gandey.

This unique extravaganza showcases 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 onto a single bicycle.

The Oriental Swan’ is a breath taking fusion of ballet, physical strength, balance and inspiring creativity. In a breath taking display of grace and poise a ballerina pirouettes on the shoulder of her partner then dances on pointe on his head and shoulders, truly making this performance an aerial ballet.

You will be able to witness the unpredictable and exhilarating twists of foot juggling with drums, the famous Chinese poles, the sensational contortionist and the dynamic hoop divers with their amazing somersaults, leaps and jumps which all go towards completing this action packed programme.

The show is suitable for an audience of all ages,  and is on Friday at 7.30pm and Saturday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
