Center for the Arts Presents the Golden Dragon Acrobats
With their award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, and spectacular costumes, the Golden Dragon Acrobats will present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty at Smothers Theatre at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27.
The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent the best of a time-honored tradition that began more than 25 centuries ago. The Golden Dragons are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premier Chinese acrobatic touring company of today. The reputation of the company is solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form.
Hailing from Hebei, China, the Golden Dragons have traveled around the world to all 50 states and to over 65 countries on five continents. The Golden Dragons remain the only Chinese acrobatic company touring year-round in the United States.
In November 2005 the Golden Dragon Acrobats made their Broadway debut to a sold-out audience at the New Victory Theatre. Their Broadway run over the next six weeks led to adoration and standing ovations from audiences of all ages and universal critical acclaim from the New York press. The run was highlighted by the Golden Dragons receiving two prestigious New York Drama Desk nominations -- Danny Chang for Unique Theatrical Experience and Angela Chang for Best Choreography.
