"It's an exciting spectacle of acrobatics and artistry, with our stars pushing the boundaries of athleticism and dexterity."
That’s how company manager Said Debbach has described the Chinese State Circus, which is currently on display in Ipswich’s Chantry Park.
Our photographer Gregg Brown captured some of the performers in rehearsal before their opening night yesterday.
Mr Debbach said the first show was “fantastic”.
He added: “The audience were wonderful – whooping and cheering and creating a brilliant atmosphere throughout the performance.
“We couldn’t have hoped for a warmer welcome to Ipswich.
“It’s an exciting spectacle of acrobatics and artistry, with our stars pushing the boundaries of athleticism and dexterity. One moment you’ll be admiring the elegance of the oriental swan, where a beautiful ballerina performs en pointe atop a male artiste’s shoulders, and the next you’ll be blown away by the awesome energy of the Shaolin Warriors and their mastery of martial arts.
“It’s truly not to be missed.”
