Direct from Beijing, the National Circus of the People’s Republic of China is a treat for the entire family, with jaw-dropping feats of contortion, juggling, flying and balance in its new program, “Cirque Chinois.” The circus was founded in 1953, making it one of the longest running and most distinguished circus troupes in China.
The National Circus of the People’s Republic of China is especially acclaimed in China because of the unique acts in its program, such as Great Teeterboard, Grand Flying Trapeze, Group Contortion, Straw Hats Juggling, Girls’ Balance With Bowls, and many other outstanding acts.
Many of the artists in the troupe have won international awards, including Ms. Li Liping, the first Golden Clown winner from China at the renowned Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, and Madame Xia Juhua, the “Chinese Ulanowa” of the circus world and chairwoman of the International Chinese Circus Society since the early 1980s. The company has won over 20 gold and silver medals and various other awards at international circus festivals including the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, Cirque de Demain, Wuqiao International Circus Festival, Wuhan International Circus Festival, and the China National Acrobatic Competition.
