Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College launches its 2011-2012 season with a special presentation of The National Acrobats of the People's Republic of China (Ms. Zhang Hong, General Director; Mrs. Sun Lili, Artistic Director) on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 1:00 pm. This performance is part of the company's very first North American tour.
The National Acrobats of The People's Republic of China (China National Acrobatic Troupe) was the first National Performing Arts Troupe established by the government of the People's Republic of China in 1950. The Company's repertoire includes a myriad of international and national gold prize winning acts, including "Slack Wire" (Presidential Gold Award at the 24th Cirque de Demain Festival in Paris), "Diabolo" (Presidential Gold Award at the 26th Cirque de Demain Festival in Paris), and "Pagoda of Bowls" (Golden Clown Award at the 28th Monte Carlo International Circus Festival). The Company has received sensational reviews both at home and abroad for numbers such as "China Soul," "Reverie," "Acrobatic Spectacular" and "Splendid."

Based in Beijing, China, the company owns a large Institution for Acrobatic Schooling, Training and Repertoire. The Institution has over 150 acrobatic resident performers and over 500 acrobatic students of all ages. Funded by a special grant from the Beijing Municipality, the company invests each year in new productions as well as acrobatic science research and creation in addition to the training facilities of the center, which with its dedication to improvement of and renewing of acrobatic standards has become one of the largest acrobatic and circus arts centers in the world.

The company has toured abroad to over forty countries including Switzerland, Israel, Finland, Italy, France, Germany, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, India, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Costa Rica, Dominica Republic, Sweden, Mexico, Russia, Portugal and Spain. In 2011 the Company makes its inaugural tour of the United States and Canada.
