Since their debut in 1986, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. Lauded by The New York Post for "pushing the envelope of human possibility," the acrobats defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. Accompanied by live musicians skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects that coalesce with the music, the Peking Acrobats' feature all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival infused with explosive energy.
The Peking Acrobats have been the featured performers on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV specials, including appearances on "The Wayne Brady Show," NBC's "Ring in the New Year Holiday Special, Nickelodeon's "Unfabulous," and "Ellen's Really Big Show," hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. Company members were also featured in director Stephen Soderbergh's hit film Ocean's 11, playing with Hollywood's elite such as Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and George Clooney. The Peking Acrobats were also the featured performers at the star-studded Hollywood Premiere of Ocean's 13 in June 2007.
