Chinese Acrobatics With a long history Chinese acrobatics is one of the traditional art form. In a broad sense, acrobatics is the collective name of various kinds of feats. Chinese acrobatics can date back to the Warring States Period (475BC-221BC). By the time of the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), the acrobatic art or "Hundred Plays" further developed both in contents and varieties. Brick paintings and stone carvings of that time unearthed, depicted acrobats performing, such as handstands, playing with swords, balls and jars, balancing, pole climbing, rope-walking and etc.
In the Tang Dynasty, the most thriving period in the history of Chinese ancient culture, the number of acrobats greatly increased and their performing skills much improved. New acrobatics such as Indian magic tricks were introduced to china from Silk Road. Acrobatics was prevalent in the imperial court and among ordinary people as well. Royal families always appreciated acrobatics at banquets.
In the Song Dynasty (960-1279), acrobatics moved from the imperial court to ordinary people, and the performing form and program contents experienced profound changes. The feudal ethics made the acrobatic art that came from ordinary people and was close to real life receive repulsion. Except some variety show items used in military trainings and performances in ceremonies in imperial court, most acrobatics programs were played by acrobats in vagabondism as a way of making a living.
This change made some large-scale programs disappear, while various small-scale programs performed by families or individuals came into being. Juggling skills saw unprecedented development. Feats of waist, leg or head emerged.
In the Ming (1638-1644) and Qing dynasties, acrobatics was still a way of making a living for some people. Programs performed by individuals, father and son, master and apprentice, saw much development, and there formed many small-scale serial acrobatic performances, retaining many traditional feats.
In the long course of development, the Chinese acrobatic art has formed its own style. The ancient acrobatics rooted in the people’s life and had a close relation with their life. Instruments of laboring like wicker rings and articles of daily use such as tables, chairs, jars, plates and bowls were used in their performances. Though having a long history of development and winning great popularity among the people, acrobatics in old China was never performed in theatres because the feudal class looked down upon it.
Since 1949 the people's government has made great efforts to foster and develop national arts and acrobatics gained a new life. Many acrobatic troupes were set up.
The acrobatic art of New China has not only made great improvement in its contents and skill but also set up a designing and directing system, aiming at creating graceful stage images, harmonious musical accompaniment, and good art effects of costumes, props and lighting so as to bring about a full-fledged stage art. The present Chinese acrobatics is full of good future and well reflects the spirit, wisdom of the Chinese people.
In the past forty years and more, many Chinese acrobatic troupes have toured around the world to promote friendship and cultural exchanges.
