The Chinese State Circus - Dynasty
The internationally acclaimed Chinese State Circus is coming back, returning to its roots in an innovatively spectacular new production – “DYNASTY”. The incomparable Chinese State Circus will be playing at Torkington Park, Hazel Grove from Tuesday 23rd to Sunday 28th May in its fully heated big top venue. Breathtaking in its simplicity, “DYNASTY” projects into a contemporary setting an art form that has thrilled audiences for more than 2,000 years where low-tech everyday objects are transformed into hi-tech acrobatic equipment. Hurtling porcelain jars...dynamically spinning plates...balancing upon gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs framed by the delicate strands of silk supporting cascading aerialists. “Never has such excitement been generated in a theatre. The whole audience hangs breathless” Manchester Evening News Stunning world class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes and jugglers interact with the super-human physical skills and dexterity of the masters of martial arts – the legendary Shaolin Warriors. The nonstop action from start to awesome finale as thrill follows thrill is set to a soaring musical score accompanied by the rhythmic beats of Chinese percussion. Its outstanding acrobatic achievement that could until now could only be created video through special effects – yet performed live in front of an audience what seems impossible becomes a reality. It is what has earned the CHINESE STATE CIRCUS the accolade “incomparable”. No gimmicks...no fakes...no retakes...quite simply...the incomparable Chinese State Circus..... more info

Eight dancers tell the tale of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers with a contagious energy, using contemporary and classical dance to shed new light on literature's most famous love story. The company has collaborated with sound artist Martin Tetreault to create an exhilarating score that draws on Romeo and Juliet music written by Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, Gounod and others. Quebecois dance company Cas Public has built an international reputation for widening the audience of contemporary dance, having performed at venues from Montreal's Place des Arts to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
