Chinese Acrobat Li Liu

“Traditions of Chinese Acrobatics” is a one-woman acrobatic performance presented at 10 and 11:30 a.m., Saturday, July 17 by Li Liu in the Darien Library courtyard.

She performs hand balancing, plate spinning, ribbon dancing, Chinese Yo-yos and foot juggling.

A limited number of volunteers get to create an impromptu ribbon dance, and to try their hand at plate spinning. Educational connections are made with the Chinese language and culture.

Li explains some of the rituals of Chinese New Year, teaches the audience some basic Chinese phrases, and encourages them to think about what it might have been like to grow up in a different time and place.


Please only register for one of the performances (by following these links): the first is from 10 to 10:40 a.m.; the second, at 11:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.
