Cirque Ziva is a fast-paced, technically innovative and beautifully presented spectacle for all ages. The Golden Dragon Acrobats hail from the People’s Republic of China and have toured the United States continuously since 1978. Its members are athletes, actors and artists who have studied and trained for their craft since early childhood. The group averages 200 performances each year and has toured through all 50 states and in over 65 countries across the world. In 2005, their Broadway debut at the New Victory Theater earned two prestigious New York Drama Desk Awards nominations (for Best Choreography and Most Unique Theatrical Experience). The troupe returned to the Broadway venue for the holiday 2014 season, making them the ONLY acrobatic troupe from China chosen to perform twice at this prestigious venue!
The troupe’s reputation remains solidly rooted in a commitment to the highest of production values and an attention to artistic details that is unparalleled in the art form… award-winning acrobatics, traditional dance, spectacular costumes, ancient and contemporary music and theatrical techniques… to present a show of breathtaking skill and spellbinding beauty.
“The Golden Dragon Acrobats present a well-placed sampler of a highly stylized art form. There is a precision and beauty about everything these performers do.” – Washington Post
"..if you can keep the kiddies from trying to imitate what they witness, and if they haven’t already seen enough similar stuff at Cirque du Soleil shows and the like, watching this troupe from China is a colorful way to spend two hours." - The New York Times
