Over a dozen acrobats on one bike; acrobats leaping through hoops; acrobats contorting into spine-tingling Play Doh formations; acrobats thrown high and acrobats teetering on stacks of huge metal and woodshapes. Damn. It's enough to inspire one to join up. But don't bother—I've already tried. Last time they visited I boarded the bus bound for the next tour stop in Visalia, but was booted off by the manager. The fact that she ID'd the lone American mutt floating among the small sea of Chinese wasn't exactly amazing. Their on-stage stunts, however, certainly are. [MCA]
