HARRIS CENTER PRESENTS
CHINESE WARRIORS OF PEKING
DIRECTED BY MR. QUI JIAN
Sat-Sun, Sept 22-23, 2018
Filled with high-intensity martial arts and breath-taking acrobatics, Chinese Warriors of Peking is a new production set during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) that tells the tale of two rival martial arts disciplines competing in the ancient Chinese capital of Peking. Under the direction of Qui Jian, it provides a culturally enriching experience filled with juggling, acrobatics, weapons handling, and live stage combat. Presented in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture of The People’s Republic of China.
The company of the Chinese Warriors of Peking was founded in 1958 as a group of Chinese acrobats and martial artists. The Chinese Warriors of Peking have been on many tours around the world in the past two decades. In 2016, the company’s performance of Pagoda of Bowls was selected by the American UniverSoul Circus to tour around the U.S. with the circus for more than ten months. The company’s Slack Wire act has toured with Cirque du Soleil around the world.
