Unforgettable entertainment
27 September 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one evening I can truthfully say was not wasted. A fantastic show not to be missed on any account. Colour,costumes, music, dance, acrobatics brought together with panache and professionalism. I liked very much the aerial displays which gave the show a new dimension and added a touch of magic to the presentation. Chinese acrobats have to be seen to be believed. Standing on shoulders five high and flying backwards through the air, the Chinese seem to defy gravity as they are catapulted up and back. How do their feet find their mark on the next pair of shoulders? Maybe it was me but I did not find the clowning of the comedians particularly funny despite the fact the audience seemed to enjoy every idiotic moment. The dralions on the other hand had a superb cheekiness in their faces and with their frolicking about the arena gave the show a great lift. Having said all that,I gave top marks to the juggler who seemed to have absolute control over each and every ball, flicking them with his head and neck or jetting them through the air with a quick movement of his foot. A superb performance beautifully choreographed making full use of the juggler's lithe strong body. And what a splendid exit....a flurry of silk...a puff of smoke and he was gone!
