Chinese State Circus
By Sam Marlowe
Queen Elizabeth Hall

ACCORDING to the programme notes, this performance by China’s renowned Changchun Troupe aims not only to entertain but also to “act as a bridge of friendship and understanding between the peoples of Britain and China”. Judging by the polite bewilderment with which some of the acts are greeted, I’m not sure that it achieves its aims.

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

Fans of the original Chinese State Circus will welcome back the dazzling acrobatics in the hoop-diving and Chinese pole-jumping routines, as well as a strong man, an amazing human-candelabra contortionist and the exquisite-looking antics of a female duo on double bouncing high-wire.
