ERA 2, the Spirit of Shanghai

ERA 2, the Spirit of Shanghai
#Entertainment

Tight-rope walkers, acrobats sitting gracefully on a ring suspended in mid-air, playing with trained pigeons, high-tech choreography combined with acrobatics inspired by parkour and street art, as well as martial arts, acrobatic dance and much more - these are the ingredients that made ERA one of the most beloved and awarded acrobatic shows since 2005, year of its genesis. The second series of this fortunate experiment which mixes genres and aesthetics, ERA 2, is a ninety-minute performance which shows the high technical level of the star acrobats but also their creativity, their mastery in using their bodies, their capacity to conduct spectators into a stunning fantasy realm. Particular attention is paid to new technologies and their interaction with traditional Chinese acrobatic arts, creating an immersive performance, both extravagant and engaging, for audiences of all ages.
