Era – Shanghai Circus World

Last night we saw “Era” with Dan and Wendy. It was amazing!! It is an acrobat show similar to Cirque de Soleil but with a very Chinese style.

You aren’t supposed to take video, but you can find anything on YouTube.

These guys were amazing. Super flexible and they did about 3 different scenes that were amazing – the first one was like the West Side Story gangs.

This was the finale. It’s a Death Cage with eight motorcycles in it! When there were four motorcycles, they start crossing paths and we actually saw a wreck. Two collided and had to be taken out. The guys seemed OK but one of the motorcycles didn’t roll out. They promptly added two more and did the trick, then added two more so six circled all over (no crossing!) and then two more came in and circled at the bottom. Just crazy.

  1. Oooh…I wonder if this is still playing in Shanghai? If so, we are so there!

  2. Yes, it is still playing. I think it actually has been playing for several years, so you don’t have to be in too big of hurry! It is at the “Shanghai Circus World” metro stop on Line 1. Definitely go see it! My husband went a second time and loved it just as much. We’ll probably go yet again with friends in the future.
