China Circus to Perform at Remington Theatre, 6/5
Direct from Jinan, China, one of the world's most awarded Acrobatic Troupes will be performing at Remington Theatre in Springfield on Thursday, June 5 at 7:00 PM. "The China Circus featuring FenMo Acrobatic Troupe" is known for its colorful costumes and daring feats of human performance art. While Springfield and the surrounding areas are quite familiar with the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus, the Jinan Troupe is considered to be one of the most skilled and highly awarded Chinese Acrobatic Troupes. Their daring feats of acrobatic skill are amazing and the beauty they bring to human performance art is breathtaking. Called FenMo because their brilliant costuming is reminiscent of the Peking Opera, this troupe features over twenty acrobats from China and has been seen around the world. This will be their first appearance in the Springfield area.
General Admission Tickets purchased in advance are $19.99 for adults ($29.99 day of show). Ages 6 through 17 years are $9.95 and children 5 years and under are free (one per paid adult).

Some of the award-winning acts include Chair Stack, Group Cycling, Foot Juggling, Handstand on Pole, High Chair Balancing, Hoop Diving, Unicycles, Hats, Swings, Hula Hoop, Diabolo, and more. Their dramatic interpretation of classic Chinese dance highlights the fact that each province of China has its own acrobatic troupe that, while using traditional Chinese Acrobatic performances, is distinctly difference in presentation, costuming, and performance style.
