NEW SHANGHAI CIRCUS, founded in 1951, has won more Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals in domestic and international circus competitions than any other Chinese acrobatic company. Breathtaking and polished to perfection, their skills have their roots in everyday lives of the village peasants, farmers and craftsman of the Han Dynasty.

“Feats of circus art that reach literally breathtaking heights of skill … the New Shanghai Circus is providing entertainment in abundance.”  – The New York Times

“Show-stopping rarities of daunting difficulty!” – Los Angeles Times
