Do you know someone who is always taking things to the extreme? Then it’s time to show them exactly what defines extreme at Cirque Shanghai Extreme at the Pepsi Skyline State on Navy Pier now before the limited-time world premiere production ends Sept. 5, 2011.
Cirque Shanghai Extreme, the spectacle for all ages, has returned and is now even more extreme than ever!
It will dazzle your senses with acrobatic performers direct from China who can tumble, juggle and balance, extremely well.
This never-before seen production delves deeply into death-defying acts including a motorcyclist traveling on a wire high above the audience with a trapeze artist performing underneath, new Shaolin Kung Fu sword fighting sequence and the Floating Cube aerial act featuring a 5 ft.-long cube suspended above the stage with artists performing inside.
If Cirque Shanghai Extreme still doesn’t seem extreme enough for you, the “Imperial Thunder” act will astound your senses as first one then two, three and finally four, that’s right, four motorcyclists zip in and whirl around in a steel globe cage right before your eyes! Get a sneak peak right here!
