This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great music. Drawing on more than 2000 years of tradition, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, plate-twirling, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

Very different - great combination of athletics and clever sets
Some good humor and dramatic visuals
I would recomend they also add lights and or dayglow to some of the activities and perform in the dark - would have been very dramatic!
Thrill to the impact of extreme sports combined with the poetry and split-second timing of dance. Exploding with the suspense and energy of near-misses and imminent crashes, action-architect Elizabeth Streb’s daring performers explore the boundaries of force, gravity, action and reaction. Whether flying, falling, or seemingly suspended in mid-air, Streb brings the audience ringside for a match-up of human pitted against the phenomenal forces of everyday physical action—creating a new aesthetic of grace and danger.
