The Peking Acrobats, a troupe of world-class athletes culled from China’s top acrobat schools, dazzle audiences with potential-pushing stunts. High-flying acts of daring recall over-the-top martial-arts movies and ultra-over-the-top romantic comedies while paper fans pop, chairs teeter to the ceiling, plates spin, and climbers shimmy in sync up twisting ropes. The troupe has tumbled across the globe and through numerous TV specials, carrying on a tradition of daring and self-control that they trace back to the Qin dynasty of China—a lineage enhanced by the occasional use of ancient folk instruments played by the ghosts of ancient folk.
Backed by a seven-piece band, chanteuse Lorna Luft—daughter of Judy Garland—belts out unique arrangements of her mother’s musical catalog, including “Chicago,” “Man that Got Away,” and “Over the Rainbow.” Acclaimed by the Los Angeles Times as “an incandescent revelation,” the multimedia production melds familiar songs with Lorna’s personal memories of her mother.
