Cirque Du Ciel's 'Shanghai'


  • Date: Monday 10 October 2011
  • Time: 7pm

The highly awaited, internationally acclaimed production of 'Shanghai' by Cirque Du Ciel comes to the UK this year- for the very first time!

'Shanghai' is a marvellous 2 hour extravaganza, originally directed by Cirque Du Soleil's Guy Caron. It combines acrobatics, modern dance, original music, martial arts and many other Chinese elements in an adventure you will find amazing to believe and difficult to forget!

With superb costumes, sets and lighting, this stunning production showcases the skills of not only the performers but the world class team behind the scenes.

In addition to traditional Chinese stunts such as the aerial silks, and the famous 'Monkey Poles', Cirque de Ciel's 'Shanghai' also features a fabulous storyline which will captivate and enthral audiences of all ages.

Miss this and you will miss the most daring, breathtaking and stunning family entertainment show of the year!
