Mattie Kelly Arts Center: Cirque Chinois
Direct from Beijing, the National Circus of the People's Republic of China presents Cirque Chinois, an international sensation featuring outstanding acts like the Great Teeterboard, Grand Flying Trapeze, Group Contortion, and many more! The National Circus was founded in 1953 and has toured 80 countries around the world, making it one of the longest running and most distinguished circus troupes in China. Their troupe introduced a new "non-animal" performance style that has reinvented the ancient tradition of the Chinese circus, influencing the pioneers of "Cirque du Soleil" and performers around the world. Tickets are $35 each.
