Once again, it’s that time of the year when Beijing is freaking cold and you just know that the most cost effective way to warm up are closed spaces and crowds of people. And what better chance than to go and watch an acrobatic show that we haven’t seen yet. Still some on our list, we picked randomly from the hat another crowd swarming sheep flocking spectacle at the Tiandi Theatre in Beijing (updated). The stage was set for a warm and exciting night, and to tell you the truth we could use the break from work!
To put it short, we were impressed. It’s really hard to say what is the best acrobatics in town. Obviously almost all of them are worth it. So in that sense, if you live here you might as well go see them all. If you don’t and you have limited time, the question is trickier. But we hope to share some light on this difficult choosing issue, heh.
As for Tiandi Theatre, we would say that the experience was very intimate. Obviously a lot of theatres in Beijing are huge, with even more huge crowds. The charm of Tiandi is that it’s not that big, but still the crowd is nicely pack making the atmosphere go up to the roof. If you don’t believe us, go and see it for yourself. Especially now during winter, it would be our best recommendation because of the warmth value. Maybe during Summer it could get a little bit too hot? Who knows. We’ll probably try that too!
Check out the Tiandi Acrobatic Show trailer and you see what we mean:
In Beijing? Head to: 10 Dongzhimen South Street, Dongcheng district. Dongsi Shitiao Station on the Beijing subway is the closest, quickest and easiest way to get there. Don’t miss it!
