Witness astounding feats of hand balancing, plate spinning, artistic cycling, foot juggling, ribbon dancing, manipulation of Chinese yo-yos and other traditional Chinese acrobatics! Families will get a glimpse of Chinese culture and learn phrases in Li Liu’s native Mandarin. In this interactive performance, several volunteers will be selected to attempt a few of the easier (and safer!) of the Chinese acrobatics on display. Students will learn the historical significance of traditional lion and dragon dances, as Li encourages them to think about what it might have been like to grow up in a different time and place, and what can be accomplished through disciplined training. This is a fascinating multicultural show that will dazzle the whole family! This program is supported in part by a grant from the Mashpee Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
