Birkenhead Park to host the
Chinese State Circus
THE incomparable Chinese State Circus
will be playing at Birkenhead Park, from the Friday, 23 September 2016 to
Sunday, 2 October 2016, in its fully heated big top venue.
The internationally acclaimed Chinese State Circus is to returning to the UK
after a break of three years returning to its roots in an innovatively
spectacular new production called:- "Dynasty."
Breathtaking in its simplicity, "Dynasty" projects into a
contemporary setting an art form that has thrilled audiences for more than 2,000
years where low tech everyday objects are transformed into hi tech acrobatic
equipment. Hurtling porcelain jars... dynamically spinning plates... balancing
upon gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs framed by the delicate strands of
silk supporting cascading aerialists.
You cant miss your opportunity to the stunning world class Chinese acrobats,
aerial artistes and jugglers interact with the super human physical skills and
dexterity of the masters of martial arts; the legendary Shaolin Warriors.
The nonstop action from start to awesome finale as thrill follows thrill is set
to a soaring musical score accompanied by the rhythmic beats of Chinese
percussion. Its outstanding acrobatic achievement that could until now could
only be created video through special effects; yet performed live in front of an
audience what seems impossible becomes a reality. It is what has earned the
Chinese State Circus the accolade "incomparable."
The history of the Chinese State Circus spans 25 years when it was conceived by
Creative Director Phillip Gandey who became the first Circus Director in Europe
to obtain permission from the Chinese Cultural authorities to be allowed to tour
a Big Top production of his own creation performed entirely by Chinese acrobats.
Phillip has spent a considerable time travelling extensively throughout China to
select the very best circus artistes who will not only be worthy of continuing
the proud and unequalled tradition of acrobatic excellence in the Chinese State
Circus, but also be capable of raising the "incomparable"
standards to even higher contemporary heights. Phillip said:- "In our
latest production we have returned to the pure and honest perfection in
acrobatics upon which our reputation is based. We have the world class artistes
capable of performing the excellence required. In 'Dynasty' we have created a
show with:- no gimmicks...no fakes...no retakes...quite simply...the
incomparable Chinese State Circus."
