An amazing acrobatic/dance show

Acrobats – Dance-Kung Fu-Acrobatic Drama: Journey to the West

Anyone wanting to see an amazingly energetic show of acrobatics/dance should not miss this incredible performance based on The Monkey King story.

Highlights of the show included a mind boggling scene of strength and flexibility by a male and female gymnast clad in body hugging white costumes as they performed acrobatic dance using incredible feats of strength and balance. This was the human body at its best! The final scene based in 'Hell' was another highlight of the show where the stage filled with incredibly fit acrobats bouncing all over the stage on trampolines performing truly inspirational acts as they spun in all directions while flying through hoops.

Complimenting this incredibly diverse acrobatic/dance show was the staging of the where no expense has been spared on costumes, props and backdrops.
