For the last 32 years, The Peking Acrobats® have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control. Everybody at every age will be thrilled and delighted by The Peking Acrobats®.

“... At no time have we seen anything like the Peking Acrobats. Feats of clowning, dexterity, grace, strength and coordination rippled from the stage in a series of pleasurable waves. One was left waterlogged in wonder.” - Chicago Tribune

David Dorfman Dance's “(A)Way Out of My Body” uses “out of body” experience as a metaphor for our times and our body politic. It’s about “life and death, fragility and joy, trauma and resilience. In other words, it’s about what we’ve all been experiencing in the age of COVID—even though it was choreographed before the pandemic” (Tresca Weinstein, Times Union). Dancers propel themselves through space and time, attempting to pass the barrier of reality and plight into the realm of resilience and joy. This collective story of searching for personal “truths” among fantastical sensations is seen through breathtaking lighting and visual design and gripping choreographer by a modern master.
 
“The tsunami of thoughts, actions and emotions that reached the audience began to find stillness, but its effects lingered as the performers made their exit and the audience dissipated.” - The College Voice
