China Circus to perform at Jefferson Theatre
June 9, 2014
Direct from Jinan, China, one of the world’s most awarded Acrobatic Troupes will be performing at the Jefferson Theatre in Beaumont, Saturday, June 14, at 2:00 and 7:00 PM.
“The China Circus featuring FenMo Acrobatic Troupe” is known for its colorful costumes and daring feats of human performance art. While many Texans are quite familiar with the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus based in Branson Mo, the Jinan Troupe is considered to be one of the most skilled and highly awarded Chinese acrobatic troupes. Their daring feats of acrobatic skill are amazing and the beauty they bring to human performance art is breathtaking. Called FenMo because their brilliant costuming is reminiscent of the Peking Opera, this troupe features over 20 acrobats from China and has been seen around the world. This will be their first appearance in the Beaumont area.
Some of the award-winning acts include chair stack, group cycling, foot juggling, handstand on pole, high chair balancing, hoop diving, unicycles, hats, swings, hula hoop, diabolo, and more. Their dramatic interpretation of classic Chinese dance highlights the fact that each province of China has its own acrobatic troupe that, while using traditional Chinese acrobatic performances, is distinctly difference in presentation, costuming, and performance style.
