Peking Acrobats coming to the Mateel

The Mateel Community Center in Redway is thrilled to be hosting, for the first time in Southern Humboldt, the awe inspiring performance of The Peking Acrobats on Monday, Jan. 14.

Since their western debut in 1986, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs, they are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. You will not want to miss this colorful and lively show complete with all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese carnival.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Show starts at 6:30 p.m. Tickets will be available for $35 at all the usual outlets. For more information, call the Mateel office at (707) 923-3368.
