Cirque D’Or Sponsored by EverTrust Bank at CCPA
CERRITOS, CA – The Golden Dragon Acrobats presents a riveting three-day engagement of the Cirque D’Or spectacle, sponsored by EverTrust Bank, at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) on Fri., December 28, Sat., December 29, and Sun., December 30.
China’s centuries-old customs come to life in Cirque D’Or, a family-friendly, spellbinding showcase of acrobatic feats, spectacular traditional dance, breathtaking costumes, and ancient and contemporary music. Expect to see performers spin umbrellas with their feet, scale poles, lean at 45-degree angles, and build human pyramids on moving bicycles.
The Golden Dragon Acrobats has toured the United States since 1978, making its well-received Broadway debut in 2005. The touring company’s current members hail from Hebei, China, and have performed in sold-out shows across 48 states in America. The troupe’s performances, filled with gravity-defying stunts and amazing body contortions, prompted The New York Times to hail: “The spectacle wasn’t created by magic, but through the strength and articulation of the body. And that’s what made it magical.” The ensemble earned the New York Drama Desk Award nominations for “Best Choreography” and “Unique Theatrical Experience.”
