Gold Awardee Videos of China Wuqiao International Circus Festival

This year from 10.31 to 11.08, a few weeks ago, 12th CWICF had just successfully taken place with 32 programmes by 200+ performers from 22 countries. I think all the programmes are amazing and deserve a prize, but only three of them are awarded the Gold Lion Prize. One is “圣斗-地圈” (means “Saint Seiya – Ground Hoops”) by China National Acrobatic Troupe, the other two are both performed by North Korea National Acrobatic Troupe (Yes, North Korea). Here, I provide you the video of two of these gold awardees. Hope you will like them.

Chinese Juggling: Challenge the Limits of Humankind

China is one of many civilizations that have recorded juggling in early cultures. Most history books recorded this vivid performance art throughout Chinese history. The earliest juggling record dates to more than 2,000 years ago.

Here I list some Chinese juggling videos selected from YouTube for you. Some of them are totally unique for Chinese juggling; some are Chinese originated but also adapted by western juggling; some are universal but of Chinese characteristics.
