Great Chinese State Circus Performs Swan Lake. Awesome Performance

I have never seen anything like this! But then chinese + circus was always going to produce something that most people believed to be impossible. They both must have incredible control of their bodies to pull of that ‘en pointe’ head move. I thought ‘en pointe’ on the shoulders was unbelievable!

They have to be reinforced to make it easier for her to steady herself on her partner’s head. I don’t get why people keep bringing up the fact that ‘she’s not a ballerina’. Not she’s not. She’s an ACROBAT and a very graceful one at that. Most people who don’t follow ballet probably could care less one way or the other. They’re just enthralled as they should be by the stunts. It’s the Circus after all.
