Chinese circus comes to CSUMB
In past years, CSU Monterey Bay’s World Theater has brought Chinese acrobats and circus performers to the area. This year, it’s acrobats AND the circus.
On Sept. 15, the National Circus and Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China will kick off this year’s Performing Arts series. The company, founded in 1953, combines elements of Peking opera and martial arts, introduced the concept of a circus without animals, and inspired the pioneers of Cirque du Soleil.
