Cirque Shanghai tumbles into Chicago’s Navy Pier this summer with an all new, awe-inspiring show “Cirque Shanghai Extreme,” June 29 – Sept. 5, rain or shine, at the Navy Pier® Pepsi® Skyline Stage, the 1,500-seat, canopied, open-air theater on Navy Pier, 600 E. Grand Ave. The world premiere production is a spectacle for audiences of all ages, featuring performers direct from China who are leaders in their craft of tumbling, juggling, balancing and more.
This year’s production features an incredible line up of new death-defying acts, including a motorcyclist traveling on a wire high above the audience. Audiences will gasp at the new Shaolin Kung Fu sword fighting sequence and be dazzled by the Floating Cube aerial act featuring a 5 ft.-long cube suspended above the stage with artists performing amazing balancing feats inside. China’s finest daredevil motorcycle troupe, “Imperial Thunder,” returns with even more thunder, now with four motorcyclists performing in Cirque Shanghai’s largest steel globe to date.
