Direct from The People’s Republic of China, the Chinese Warriors of Peking is an acclaimed martial arts and acrobatic company whose award-winning “Slack Wire” act has toured the world with Cirque du Soleil. Under the direction of Qui Jian, this company of talented martial artists and acrobats provides an amazing demonstration of stage combat, traditional weapons handling, juggling, diving rings, contortion, and acrobatics. “An entertaining show for the whole family.” (Eastbourne Herald)
