Chinese State Circus

The circus came to town last weekend! Not the animal circus, but the human acrobat circus. This one from China. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but since we're planning a trip to China at the end of the month, we decided to get tickets.

It was really good, actually. Interesting music and amazing acrobatics. Not quite Cirque de Soliel in Vegas, but very fun to watch. Here are a few photos from the afternoon.

Yep, he's lying on a bed of nails with a cement block on his stomach while the other guy lets him have it with a hammer.

These guys were cool. They took turns jumping through the hoops, which kept getting higher and higher.
Not sure what you call this - foot juggling? Lots of balance required, that's for sure!

We often joke at work about "keeping all the plates spinning"; these ladies know what that's really like!
Hard to tell from the photo, but they juggled hats - very cute.

This group had these weird yo yo type things and then did tricks like this one.

More foot juggling.
