Shangri-la Chinese Acrobats plan BYU performance Oct. 3

Sensational Chinese acrobatics, balancing feats and martial arts will entertain during the “Shangri-la Chinese Acrobats” show Friday, Oct. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Brigham Young University de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $20-30, with $7 off with BYU or student ID and $3 off for senior citizens and BYU alumni. To purchase tickets, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-4322 or visit byuarts.com.

The grace and precision of the acrobats are the triumph of years of training and discipline in an art form influenced by centuries of tradition. The acts demonstrate the perfection of harmony between mind and body — an ancient Oriental concept.

The program will include “Lion Dance,” “Darling Diablos,” “Daring Diving Do,” “Balancing Fantasy with a Twist,” “A Souped up Strap Act,” “The Happy Chefs,” “In the High Chair,” “Human Pyramid” and “Bicycle Pagoda.”

In addition to appearing on TV specials, the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats have been seen on the Family Channel’s “Home & Family Show,” hosted by Christina Ferrari; KTLA’s “Good Morning LA;” “New York One News;” CNN, where they were interviewed by Christiane Amanpour; and Calgary’s “Big Breakfast” morning show on the A-Channel.

From major performing arts venues to colleges and universities, this ensemble thrills audiences with their death-defying dexterity and skill. They have performed at many corporate events over the years, most recently for the USA Olympic Swim Team at the Event Finals in Omaha, Nebraska.

This group has performed throughout South and Central America, Southeast Asia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Monte Carlo, New Zealand, Israel, Canada and the United States.

For more information, contact Ken Crossley at (801) 422-9348.
