Past & Future Look to the Acrobatic Show Scene in China

It has been more than an interesting ride with all the shows in Beijing, as well as the acrobatic one we visited in the city of Shanghai. Within a very short time, we have seen many of the theater venues develop tremendously. A fact that we are very proud of, and whenever visitors come to Beijing we make sure to take them to visit at least our famous Beijing Acrobatic Show at the heart of the performing culture center. It has never happened, that any of our guests would not have been amazed by the performance. The second fact, that makes us confident to present it to any nationality, age or even theatrical preference. One of the things we love the most, when we can surprise the expectations of someone, who perhaps originally didn’t like acrobatics or such circus performance before. Yet after seeing the show at the Chaoyang Theater, is completely hooked! It makes us think “This is the life” in all it’s brilliance.

Beautiful Beijing Acrobatics

That doesn’t mean that there are not exceptions however, for example the show at Tiandi Theatre is also an extremely enjoyable performance for those business groups that prefer a smaller setting, which doesn’t lack in excitement of course. So we ask before hand from our customers, if they prefer the full blown spectacle or a moreo intimate experience.. either way is perfectly fine for us, and we could see any of the shows a thousand times without getting bored at them.

Of course, we would never forget the Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe either, which is top of the line in the acrobatic world of Shanghai. If we can say one unfortunate thing, is that whenever we visit Shanghai we are so busy with work.. it seems that the life of pace there is quite different from Beijing where we still have more relaxing moments. Perhaps it’s just the experience of the Beijing Report staff, or perhaps sometimes others can relate to.. from what we heard so far, it seems to be the case indeed.

But it all comes down to the magnificence of the Chaoyang Theatre, to which we reported a new stunt repertoire at the end of last year. It has been very successful, and guests have been more impressed than ever. It’s no longer a question of Beijing acrobatics, but more of a Chinese acrobatic experience on a national level. It’s where people go to see the top of the line in evolution. It has indeed stayd dear to our hearts and close to our minds and motives. Sometimes we have gathered courage and innovation from it, that has been shared in mutual respect with all those who attended the show with us. Not even the pollution in Beijing matters for a day, when you get to experience the troupe. It’s really easy to get to the theatre, just jump on a Rickshaw and you are there. I know that most people prefer to take a taxi for the convenience, but we want to bring people a very unique, and original Chinese understanding.. from such a simple thing that it’s just so much fun.

Anyway, we found this amazing trailer on YouTube of the Beijing Acrobatic Show. We wanted to show it to you so that more people would get excited about it. It’s just because we would really like them to have even more business so that they become even more famous.. and of course further improve the spectacle that already has it’s excitement level up to the roof. But knowing that they can achieve the impossible, we are sure that they can go even further.. just so that China can stay on top!

Thanks for your interest! See you soon and please contact us if you have any improvement ideas for the website.

Just Life & or Just News from Beijing

For a lot of us who live in Beijing, we are used to that fact that life is the biggest news here. Let’s face it, Beijingers as well as the rest of the Chinese love to talk. There are so many people who cant just ignore all the so called “big news”, that are presented by the media. While at the same time going to such huge lengths to fish out all the gossip of the place they live in. It’s all innocent of course, as most of the Chinese don’t have any kind of “bad eye” as they like to call it. I would call it a geniuine interest in life itself. That is an important essense of the people in the republic.

I guess the big confusion is, that in the west this kind of activity is often seemed as something that’s just being nosy. But in China, it’s completely innocent. And simply that fact that a custom that’s something totally different in another country, and again something else in another. Simply that gives us kicks and wants us to learn more about a culture and it’s customs. China is loaded with that. Sometimes you have logic reasoning behind the facts and sometimes.. it feels just so wrong. But exactly that moment when it’s hard to accept a new way of thinking, there is tremendous opportunity to learn something totally new. Which doesn’t mean that you have to accept everything. Without a doubt, not everything is ethical or doing the right thing around here.

A Chinese would probably say that “it’s just life”, which has it’s annoyance but at the same time it’s like.. you wish you could do as them, and enjoy life with such simplicity. For folks like us, the key is in a balance. We learned our half from the so called “innocence”, in China. And the second half comes from our roots in the west. That’s why in todays world it’s great to be born as a so called multinational. You get to choose and pick what ever you like!

We bring the balance, we have decided. Both life and both news. And we are not a rare occurence, it seems a lot of us expats in China have learned that salt in life.

Annnyway, just happy Chinese new year everyone! Watch out for the fireworks.

The Future of Beijing Reporting

Beijing Report has become a sort of a personal blog of some kind, with opinions and experiences from the city. We have been quite happy with that, but also wanted to ask our readers if they are satisfied with the experience so far. That’s why we opened up a questionare of a lot of the entities that are still following our footsteps and reading our news. Turned out the results were very positive indeed and people have been happy with our more “personal” approach to news reporting. As many of have seen, we have put a fair amount of effort into theatre and other show venues, which has received a lot of positive comments. Also it has been an amazing experience for us and we hope to do more show review reporting in the future!

Beijing Report LogoI Dwayne Peng, have been quite busy with my main work, and have to admit that couldn’t post as often as I originally wanted to. And that is one of the things we are trying to teach and get the message across too. That Beijing is a hard working place, and for those foreigners who think that they can just come here and enjoy a relaxed life while spending money. This is not always the case at all, and westerners are expected to perform well in business. Even more than the hardworking Chinese counterpart.

All this had lead to us thinking that the future is Beijing Report will be something that’s just, in the future without a certain destiny. Sometimes things are better left on their own weight, which is often the style in China. But what’s important is to recognise when it’s the right time to do that, and when you really need to push for a certain goal. For us, our loves are full of goals to be achieved and there is just not enough time to pursue a full on Beijing news service. At least for now with these resources.

Basically we will do what feels fun for us and if that’s good to keep things going in a light way, we are very happy to serve you for that one entertainment part. Hopefully the resource we have created will be not just fun and games but useful as well.

Many thanks and let’s see where the wind blows!
