an acrobatics & dance show in nanning

Saturday, December 27:  This evening I was invited by a couple of my colleagues to an acrobatics & dance show in Nanning.  A Chinese doctor friend of Eddie’s, Dr. Pan (who does Chinese traditional medicine such as acupuncture), purportedly had four free tickets, so I was invited after a long line of invitees declined the invitation.  Oh well, it was a fun evening, so I’m glad all those other people opted out!

It turned out Dr. Pan knew the manager of the theater and didn’t really have any tickets at all.  When we arrived at the venue, Dr. Pan called the manager, and he escorted us in through the stage door and up into the balcony.

I had seen a professional acrobatics extravaganza when I was in Beijing in 2010, so I didn’t expect much here in Nanning.  Even though the venue itself was nothing special (the theater was cold and rather decrepit), the actual performance — the acrobatics, the music, the dancing, the costumes, and the stage sets — were fabulous.   Our seats were on a balcony in the back and I tried to take pictures with my iPhone but most of them were awful.  In retrospect, I should have brought my Olympus PEN, but I’m not sure with the low light and our distance from the stage that they would have turned out better.

Here are just a few shots of our evening.  I apologize for the poor quality of the images!

And here’s me after the show in front of the billboard.

I’ve determined after two such shows that the Chinese are really amazing at acrobatics!! 🙂
