The Peking Acrobats soar into the historic Carolina Theatre prepared to astound audiences with gravity-defying stunts and spellbinding aerial antics. Since making their Western debut in 1986, the Chinese-based masters of marvel have helped infuse modern culture with their unique, ancient art form, sweeping across major U.S. television networks and swinging through venues worldwide. A live Chinese orchestra accompanies each gasp-worthy step with whimsical measures while colorfully costumed performers balance atop pencil-thin wires, ride elevated cycles, and contort their bodies into the phone numbers of ex-sweethearts. Elaborate stage props add striking visuals to the unfolding spectacle, backing jugglers and gymnasts with surprising twists throughout the show. From the second balcony of the 85-year-old Durham complex, wide-eyed onlookers can catch lofty views of the color-splashed stage and split-second wardrobe changes in the theater’s rafters.

The Carolina Theatre of Durham

One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, The Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.
