We saw the Peking Acrobats last weekend but I didn’t take pictures and therefore have nothing to say. Except that when the one chick was balancing 4 tiers of wineglasses and 16 lit candles from a bite plate in her mouth while climbing up a ladder, I kept wanting to pull the fire alarm, just to break up the tension in the room. Then I noticed her assistants in the wings looking like this and changed my mind.
(I have no idea where the bra came from.)
One act involved a guy trying to chop two bricks in half with his head. He rammed his head into those bricks full-force, only to bounce backwards without having broken a thing. I used to teach junior high English, so I know just how he felt.
The show was 2 hours long. During the first hour, a dozen girls came out twirling 10 plates on long sticks while contorting their bodies and I thought, “WOOOOWWWWW! That’s impossible!” During the second hour I knew I had become desensitized when a guy got 30 plates spinning all at once and I turned to my husband with an I-could-totally-do-that look on my face.
All mockery aside, the Peking Acrobats are a blast and a half and you should all go buy tickets. If that’s not feasible then you should all sit around feeling guilty that you haven’t bought tickets yet. I will leave you the same way the Peking Acrobats left me: with a girl riding a unicycle atop a parasol being twirled by some guy.
(Sorry; apparently Windows Live Search doesn’t have any such image, but this squirrel pops up when I search for “unicycle + parasol image.”)
