The new family-friendly extravaganza of tumbling, balancing and breathtaking dexterity from the Golden Dragon Acrobats takes over the Tower Theatre in downtown Bend for three performances, January 6-7. Two dozen gymnasts from Hebei, China perform a spellbinding full-length show of ageless acrobatics, dazzling choreography, contemporary costumes and traditional music.
Lien Chi Chang established the Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats in 1967 with his family, including son Danny. After nearly two decades of apprenticeship with his dad and several years of world tours under his gymnastic belt, Danny Chang became President of the Golden Dragon Acrobats. With their American debut in 1985, the Golden Dragons quickly became the preeminent Chinese acrobatic company continually touring the United States. Every year, with his wife and choreographer, Angela, Danny attends acrobatic competitions around the world to select the most elite performers to join the Golden Dragon Acrobats.
Cirque Ziva is the fifth of eight acts in Bend Surgery Center’s CenterStage Series. Mountain View Heating is the showcase sponsor. Central Oregon Radiology and Deschutes Brewery are supporting sponsors. Chainbreaker White IPA is the night’s featured beer.
