Description

The documented history of acrobatics in China goes back more than 2000 years! In this mesmerizing one-woman acrobatic performance, Li performs hand balancing, plate spinning, artistic cycling, ribbon dancing, diabolos, and foot juggling. Volunteers join her to create an impromptu ribbon dance and try their hand at plate spinning. Throughout the performance educational connections are made with Chinese language and culture as 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.
