Have you also noticed that Chinese people always win gold at the Olympics in Gymnastic ?
Well I discovered the secret during my first visit in China in the central province of Henan. Puyang, a city situated on the banks of the yellow river, is well known for several historical figures including military strategist Wu Qi and stateman Shang Yang but also for its acrobatics… Indeed the town is home to many academies and schools teaching thousand of children the art of acrobatics.
We watched one of its premier acrobatic shows, the Water Show, where various acrobats perform in or around water. During 1h30, nearly 100 artists will take you into a magical world. The sets, the light, the music, the costumes and the acrobatics will definitely thrill you.
Puyang is also known as the cradle of Chinese acrobatics. Having watched the Water Show, left us in no doubt about the credibility of this claim !
