“Feats of circus art that reach breathtaking heights of skill.”
– The New York Times
New Shanghai Circus features astonishing athletes while executing breathtaking feats as they stretch the limits of human ability in this spellbinding show that draws upon 2,000 years of Chinese circus traditions. If it’s humanly possible – and even if it seems as if it’s not – these acrobats, jugglers and contortionists do it with spectacular flair.
“The New Shanghai Circus has a neat trick of cutting the music during its most astonishing feats, so that the soundtrack becomes the “oohs,” “ahs” and “Oh, my Gods!” from the stunned audience.”
– The New York Times

New Shanghai Circus is considered to be China’s most celebrated acrobatic company; the performers for the New Shanghai Circus have stunned and amazed audiences all over the world. Each year the troupe adds new performers creating a revolving line-up of award winning favorites the Human Strength and Beauty, Plates Spinning, Jar Jugglers, Diabolo, Magic Clock, Butterfly Lovers, and more.
