"Act after act stunned. Costumes were bright, sparkly and colorful, and the performers moved with almost impossible grace... The enthusiastic standing ovation at the end attests to the show's audience pleasing powers." Centre Daily Times, Camille-Yvette Welsch
"The night was filled with spectacular stunts ... Contortionists bent and flexed their bodies in ways that seemed to defy the human anatomy, acrobats made leaps and tumbles that made one question the alws of physics, and many of the acrobats laughed in the face of gravity." The Anchor-Kyle Grant

The National Acrobats of The People’s Republic of China 2014 was founded in 1951 and has been one of the most acclaimed acrobatic troupes in China. Over several generations, the Company has developed many unique acrobatic acts like“Global Motorcycling”, “Kicking Bowls to Heads on High Unicycles”, “Russian Bars In Chinese Traditional Style”, “Chinese Poles In Shaolin Style”, “Diving . . . Through Moving Hoops”, “Aerial Bungee Tumblings”, and “Aerial Tissue Flowers”, etc. These acts (and many others) have been enjoyed and praised by Chinese and foreign audiences for decades. Since its inception in 1951, there have been more than two hundred artists of the Company that have won the gold and silver awards at international and national acrobatic competitions and circus festivals.
In 1972, the Company visited the United States with 72 artists who were invited as guests to the White House by President Richard Nixon while on tour. As performing arts ambassadors, the Company played a key role in the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, whose governments at that time had no formal diplomatic ties. More than forty years later, the Company has toured five hundred cities in seventy countries. In 2012, five troupes and teams from the Company traveled to Germany, Turkey, Taiwan and Singapore.
Since 1999, the Company has also created several impressive productions, such as “Mirage”, “Mirage of Dragons”, “Confuscise”, “Pirates!”, and “Sun Birds.” These productions have been performed almost four thousand times across Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Israel, Argentina and Chile. For its 2014 North American tour, the Company will bring a production named “Cirque Peking” that will combine various excellent acts from those productions.
