Yesterday I have been to the Peking Circus show here in Brussels. These acrobates were absolutely phantastic ! I thought they don't have any bones, they moved around like snakes.
The show was based on a little romantic love story between a poor farmer and the Emperor's daughter, of course with a happy end. The soldiers who fought for the Emperor and the poor farmer performed Martial Art in an amazing dancing style.
It looks like one person with several arms and you really could believe it of course
they were three girls.

Dances with a one wheel bicycle
and a dance with a cloth
one of the scenes. The music, light games and direction were absolutely wonderful
The whole troup consisted of about 50 acrobates and they got a hurrican of applause !
If ever you have the occasion to see them, it is really worthwhile.
I found this little video on the net and it shows you much better what I have seen than my poor pictures !
