School Performance: The Martial Artists and Acrobats of Tianjin, the People's Republic of China: China Soul (KCYS)

This performance is part of the Krannert Center Youth Series, school-day performances for public, private, and home schools, grades PreK-12.

Glittering costumes, breathtaking tricks, and magnificent feats of athletic daring splendidly create a tour de force when this magnetic, award-winning troupe takes to international stages. First formed in 1957, but with a legacy stretching back thousands of years, the Tianjin Martial Artists and Acrobats bring joy to audiences through their delightful gymnastics, towering human pyramids, precise Kung Fu maneuvers, and more in the debut tour of China Soul.

Connects to Illinois Learning Standards in Fine Arts, Social/Emotional Learning, Social Sciences, and Science.

Recommended for grades K-12
Performance length: 60 minutes
