The Imperial Acrobats of China display their seemingly effortless athletic prowess during a rousing performance of Chi of Shaolin: Tale of the Dragon. The show follows the story of a wounded thief who is taken in by Shaolin monks, undergoing a transformation as he heals and vows never to steal the emperor’s baseball-card collection again. As the tale unfolds on stage, rapt audience members witness agile performers flying above the regal set, martial artists successfully breaking bricks over others’ heads, and graceful dancers balancing on towering unicycles as they attempt to complete their newspaper delivery job.
