Recently appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman, master acrobat Li Liu sends audiences of all ages reeling with a sense of wonder and joyful dizziness with aerial feats that have garnered her numerous awards, including the gold medal at the Festival Mondial du Cirque in Paris. On Sunday, October 16, fans of artful physical domination over natural laws can witness Li Liu's balancing prowess, proclivity for twirling rings, and penchant for shaming flying squirrels during an acrobatic dance. After starting as a somersaulting tot at the age of 7, Li Liu spent eight hours a day for nine years honing her craft at the Chinese National School in Beijing. Since completing her rough and tumble education, she has toured extensively with groups such as the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Guests witness the equilibrium-defying acrobatics at the Centennial Theatre, which has housed all forms of imaginative entertainment, from travelling troubadours and unicorn orchestras to comedic romps and children's theatre, since opening its doors in 1966.
