The Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats will perform at the Iroquois Amphitheater on Friday, July 23, at 8 p.m., becoming the latest national act to provide perfect family entertainment at the South Louisville facility.
The Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats have become the country’s leading troupe of traditional Chinese acrobatic companies, touring more and performing before larger crowds than any other company in the U.S. The troupe is now marking their 30th year of continuous touring.
The dancers represent China’s most honored traditions, mixing award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, and ancient and contemporary theatrical techniques to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty that continues to enthrall audiences of all ages. The 21-member company from Xian, China, “delivers beautifully choreographed routines showcasing their amazing skill and physicality, accompanied by a musical score of traditional Chinese music filtered through a New Age sensibility,” according to the New York Post.
Troupe director Danny Chang and choreographer Angela Chang combine their expertise, love of their art, and life-long discipline in producing tours. Their dedication has brought their company to all 50 U.S. states and over 65 countries on five continents, including performances at such prestigious venues as the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Germany’s Elspe Festival, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Caesar’s Palace in Atlantic City, and the Seattle Children’s Festival.
Tickets to the show are $25 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under and can be purchased at the Iroquois Amphitheater’s Web site at http://www.iroquoisamphitheater.com or by calling 502/368-5865. For more information about the Golden Dragon Acrobats, visit http://www.goldendragonacrobats.com.
