The Golden Dragon Acrobats

Date: 
Thursday, March 5, 2020 - 7:30pm

The World's Leading Chinese Acrobatic Troupe - The Golden Dragon Acrobats hail from Cangzhou, Hebei province in the People’s Republic of China and have toured the United States continuously since 1978. Its members are athletes, actors, and artists who have studied and trained for their craft since early childhood. Their spellbinding artistry and unmatched athleticism will thrill and amaze audiences of all ages.

Touring worldwide and performing feats on chairs stacked 10 stories high, The Golden Dragon Acrobats have received two prestigious New York Drama Desk Award nominations for their Broadway performances. Their most recent 5-week run at Broadway’s New Victory Theater marks the only acrobatic troupe from China chosen to perform twice at this prestigious venue.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time-honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago. The company's reputation is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form. World-renowned impresario and the group’s founder and director Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music, and theatrical techniques to construct a performance of breathtaking skill and beauty.

"When the Golden Dragon Acrobats come to town, the wonders stack up," according to The New York Times. "Cathedrals of contortionists in backbend rise before your eyes, body by body. Human obstacles, which tumblers flip over, widen in person-size increments. The thrill is escalation. These touring acrobats from China know how to keep topping themselves."
