A tale of competition in ancient Peking
The Chinese Warriors of Peking is a new production filled with high-intensity martial arts and breath-taking acrobatics set during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
The show tells the tale of two rival martial arts disciplines competing in the ancient Chinese capital of Peking.
This story is coming to the Seby B. Jones Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10.
The company of the Chinese Warriors of Peking was founded in 1958 as a group of Chinese acrobats and martial artists.
The Chinese Warriors of Peking have been on many tours in the past two decades. In 2016, the company's performance of Pagoda of Bowls was selected by the American UniverSoul Circus to tour around the United States with the circus for more than ten months.
The company's Slack Wire act was picked by Cirque du Soleil and has toured with the company around the world.
This performance is presented in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture of The People's Republic of China.
