Breathtaking in its simplicity…….Low tech becomes hi tech.
“The most honest, awe-inspiring and exhilarating circus it has ever been my privilege to see”
Evening Standard

The internationally acclaimed Chinese State Circus is to return to the UK in 2016 after a break of three years returning to its roots in an innovatively spectacular new production – “DYNASTY”.

Breathtaking in its simplicity, “DYNASTY” projects into a contemporary setting an art form that has thrilled audiences for more than 2,000 years where low-tech everyday objects are transformed into hi-tech acrobatic equipment. Hurtling porcelain jars….dynamically spinning plates… balancing upon gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs framed by the delicate strands of silk supporting cascading aerialists.

“Never has such excitement been generated in a theatre. The whole audience hangs breathless”
Manchester Evening News

Stunning world class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes and jugglers interact with the super-human physical skills and dexterity of the masters of martial arts – the legendary Shaolin Warriors.

The nonstop action from start to awesome finale as thrill follows thrill is set to a soaring musical score accompanied by the rhythmic beats of Chinese percussion. Its outstanding acrobatic achievement that could until now could only be created video through special effects– yet performed live in front of an audience what seems impossible becomes a reality. It is what has earned the CHINESE STATE CIRCUS the accolade “incomparable”.

The history of the Chinese State Circus spans 25 years when it was conceived by Creative Director Phillip Gandey who became the first Circus Director in Europe to obtain permission from the Chinese Cultural authorities to be allowed to tour a Big Top production of his own creation performed entirely by Chinese acrobats.

Phillip has spent a considerable time travelling extensively throughout China to select the very best circus artistes who will not only be worthy of continuing the proud and unequalled tradition of acrobatic excellence in the Chinese State Circus but also be capable of raising the “incomparable” standards to even higher contemporary heights.

“In our latest production we have returned to the pure and honest perfection in acrobatics upon which our reputation is based,” said Phillip. “We have the world class artistes capable of performing the excellence required. In “DYNASTY” we have created a show with:
no gimmicks…no fakes…no retakes…quite simply…the incomparable Chinese State Circus.”

Following concerns over environmental issues, Weymouth Lifeboat Station will now be holding a ‘virtual’ balloon race.

The balloon tags, which would have been attached to the real balloons and released on 5th May, will now be placed into a drum and once every 5 days for the duration of the race, a number of balloon tags will be drawn, at random, from the drum with the balloon’s final destination being calculated as if the wind had blown the balloon over the previous 24 hours. The average direction of the actual wind along with the recorded strength of the actual wind will be used to identify the balloon’s final positions. The race will still run for 6 weeks as per the original race and the first four tickets drawn on the 16th June will be the winners.

Only 30% of the tickets will be drawn over the 6 week period as only about that percentage have their tags returned in a proper balloon race.

Tickets cost £1 and are on sale from Weymouth Lifeboat Station and Bussells Chandlers in Hope Street.
