The Peking Acrobats 

When: Sun., Feb. 19 2012
For anyone who struggles with the competing demands of chewing gum and walking, watching the Peking Acrobats perform is like stumbling into another universe. “How can they do that?” you’ll be asking as you watch the troupe of Chinese gymnasts, jugglers, contortionists, and tumblers push the envelope of corporeal possibility. Turns out, their circus-style bravado and Olympic-worthy precision are all part of an ancient Chinese tradition that honors acrobats as artists, and endows their training and development with glamour worthy of a rock star. You can catch them (not literally, thank goodness) at the Palace Theatre today. Accompanied by live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments, they’ll be leaping, sailing, and walking on wires beginning at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $35 by phone, online, or at the box office.
