Acrobat LiLiu

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

“Traditions of Chinese Acrobatics” is a one-woman acrobatic performance. The documented history of acrobatics in China goes back more than 2000 years. Li performs hand balancing, plate spinning, artistic cycling, ribbon dancing, diabolos and foot juggling. A limited number of volunteers get to join her on stage to create an impromptu ribbon dance, and also to try their hand at plate spinning. Educational connections are made with the Chinese language and culture. Li explains some of the rituals of Chinese New Year, teaches the audience some basic Chinese phrases, and encourages them to think about what it might have been like to grow up in a different time and place. No registration necessary. Recommended for ages 4+
