ARTS San Antonio Presents… The Peking Acrobats!
Nowadays, we have access to the world from the comfort of our palms. From a 5-inch screen, we can be whisked away to distant lands and experience different people, languages and cultures. This is truly a remarkable thing! The only downside is that all that you see and hear through your pocket-sized gadget has a filter on it.
What you’re seeing is being shown to you through someone else’s perspective. You miss out on important and unique aspects of the experience like sound, smell, feeling, and atmosphere. There really is no deserving substitute to seeing things in person or through your own eyes.
With schedules, responsibilities, and financial restraints, we can’t all afford to drop everything and go experience different places for ourselves on a regular basis. The solution? Bring the experience to YOU. Culture can be communicated to us through the performing arts, and luckily, for San Antonians- ARTS San Antonio makes this possible.
The Peking Acrobats
ARTS San Antonio makes experiencing worldwide cultures possible- right here in San Antonio. Their mission is to, “…entertain, enrich and educate the people of San Antonio and South Texas.” This year, they are celebrating their 25th anniversary of bringing art and culture to San Antonio. They do this through various productions throughout the year, and this month, they have teamed up with the Majestic Theatre to bring a very unique and eclectic cultural experience to San Antonio- The Peking Acrobats.
“A performance built on layers of amazement.”- Los Angeles Times
The Peking Acrobats are a group from Beijing, China who perform incredible balancing feats and graceful movements that defy gravity (and keep you on the edge of your seat). These highly-skilled performers bring you a grand performance filled with trick-cycling, precision tumbling, and elaborate maneuvers with chairs that are choreographed to amaze. Their stunning displays of contortion, flexibility, and control are all brought to you to the tune of music played on traditional Chinese instruments.
This event is an exciting and cultural experience for the whole family to enjoy! Come out and experience this event for yourself- through sound, feeling, and atmosphere!
