Performing together since 1986, the Peking Acrobats combine elements of folk artistry and modern technology in family-friendly spectacles filled with trick-cycling, tumbling and gravity-defying feats. Part of an acrobatic tradition that dates back to the Ch’in Dynasty, the troupe is possibly best known for its Human Chair Stack, a Guinness World Record-winning act involving six people atop six chairs 21 feet in the air without safety lines. The company’s 29th North American tour lands at the Tobin with special guests Jigu! Thunder Drums of China.
