    Witness the incredible skills and agility of a truly unique group of artists during this unforgettable demonstration of Chinese acrobatics.


    Ancient stone carvings, earthen pottery and early written works trace the ancestry of today's Chinese acrobats back to 700 B.C. Confucius' father was an acrobat and strongman of unrivaled strength and is reputed to have once lifted 1,000-pound city gates to permit an army to storm through. During the Han Dynasty more than 2,000 years ago, the first Chinese acrobats, magicians and jugglers sprang forth from the annual village harvest celebrations. With relatively little to do over the long winter, Chinese farmers and village craftsmen decided to spend their idle time improving their social position by becoming acrobats. They practiced the art form with items found around the house and farm, using cups, saucers, tables, chairs, plates, and even their own bodies to form human walls and pyramids.


    Depart the pier for the drive to the Portman Theater to see a spectacular performance of incredible balance and amazing displays of strength by highly-skilled and trained Chinese acrobats. Building on the traditional performances, today's artists have added new techniques and spectacular stunts designed to thrill and amaze audiences all around the globe.
