The Chinese Warriors of Peking is a new production filled with high-intensity martial arts and breath-taking acrobats, set during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), to tell the tale of two rival martial arts disciplines competing in the ancient Chinese capital of Peking. This amazing story is coming to DeVos Performance Hall on Tuesday, October 30 at 7:30PM.
Under the direction of Qui Jan, the Chinese Warriors of Peking provides a culturally enriching experience filled with juggling, acrobatics, weapons handling and live stage combat. 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 numerous tours over the past two decades, most recently, performing in Denmark and Britain. The company's Slack Wire act was picked by Cirque du Soleil and has toured with Cirque du Soleil around the world.
