New Shanghai Circus

Maui Arts & Cultural Center presents the return engagement of a family favorite — the Shanghai Circus — onstage in the Castle Theater.

Monday, January 15th at 4:00 PM & 7:30 PM
Tuesday, January 16th at 4:00 PM & 7:00 PM

The New Shanghai Circus features fearless performers with boundless energy and amazing skill who bring new interpretations to traditional Chinese circus arts — some acts with thousands of years in the making! The acrobats, jugglers, knife-throwers, contortionists, and other skilled performers of the Shanghai Circus dedicate their life to the achievement of perfection as they defy gravity and execute breathtaking feats of balance and skill. These acts are staged with traditional Chinese props and themes, but in the spirit of the “new circus,” all of this is accomplished with 21st-century flair: nouvelle costumes, dramatic lighting, and magical stagecraft. Tickets are $12, $25, $35 (plus applicable fees)
