The Chinese State Circus and Shaolin Wu-Shu Warriors
By Liz Arratoon for The Stage
For the first time outside China, Phillip Gandey has combined customary Chinese State Circus acts with Shaolin Temple martial arts, Wu-Shu warriors and artists from the Peking Opera, including the Monkey King narrator, who provides the historic background to the action
