Extreme Chinese circus inspire the west

The National Circus of the People’s Republic of China, founded in 1953, introduced the concept of a circus without animals. It inspired the pioneers of Cirque du Soleil, and now puts a new spin on some of the greatest circus acts of our time. The National Circus offers a feast of balance, juggling, flying and contortion put on by the ensemble of 40 gymnasts, jugglers and dancers who bend and flex their bodies in ways that seem to defy human anatomy.

This is a new art form to western audiences, but part of the Chinese culture for centuries. The Chinese circus was once reserved for emperors and their courts. Everything about the circus acts is extreme: extreme Kung fu exhibitions, Chinese yo-yos and multi-plate balancing.
