Photo of the Day – Diving Board Flip – Shanghai Acrobat Troupe – Shanghai, ChinaThe production budget of an acrobat show in China is peanuts compared to a Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas (which you can clearly confirm with your own eyes by looking at the cheap background in this shot). The performance is more pure natural brilliance and less smoke and mirrors.
It is unfathomable to think of how they execute this backflip perfectly night after night. Consider yet, that after the flip in this picture, a fourth guy did an identical rotation one row higher up!
Seeing a performance of the Shanghai Acrobat Troupe is an absolute must when visiting Shanghai. Don’t miss it!
Photo of the Day – Human Balance Beam – Shanghai Acrobats – Shanghai, ChinaI am honestly not even really sure what to say about this, but … WOW! When I look at this photo I keep looking at each individual man and what they must be focusing on to make sure this works – intense, right?
I must say I’m also a huge fan of this photo thanks to the AbsoluteVisit orange
Photo of the Day – Shanghai Acrobat Troupe – Shanghai, ChinaSeeing a Chinese acrobat performance is an absolute must do on your first visit to China. The world renowned Shanghai Acrobat Troupe is the best and the one I’d suggest you try to get tickets for.
Will and I caught a show as we were passing through Shanghai on our trip around the world back in 2010. The performances are unbelievable. Everyone in the crowd stares in amazement, wondering if what they are watching is reality or magic. Check it out!
