Stars of the Peking Acrobats

Lakeside is excited to welcome Stars of the Peking Acrobats back to Hoover Auditorium for a high-flying show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17.

For nearly four decades, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess in such arts as trick cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control.

Since their founding in 1986, The Peking Acrobats have been featured on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV specials. These include Nickelodeon’s “Unfabulous,” “Ellen’s Really Big Show” (hosted by Ellen DeGeneres), “The Wayne Brady Show,” “That’s Incredible,” “ABC’s Wide World of Sports” and NBC’s “Ring in the New Year Holiday Special.”

The Peking Acrobats set the world record for the Human Chair Stack on FOX’s “Guinness Book Primetime” television show in 1999 when they balanced six people precariously atop six chairs 21′ up in the air without safety lines. They have also made their way onto the silver screen. Company members were featured in Steven Soderbergh’s hit film “Ocean’s Eleven” playing alongside Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
