Rui Kai International Culture Art Exchange Pty Ltd present
The Shaolin Warriors - Kung Fu Spectacular
Thursday 11th October @ 7:30pm
Direct from China the award winning Shaolin Kung Fu, hits the Sunshine Coast
Direct from China to the Sunshine Coast, a troupe of highly accomplished and celebrated performing and martial artists are on their first tour to Australia. Event organisers, Rui Kai International Cultural Exchange Pty Ltd are proud to present for the first time in Queensland The Shaolin Warriors - Kung Fu Spectacular!
The performances offered by this seemingly gravity defying troupe are not to be missed and amaze audiences of all ages.
While movies featuring Kung Fu are laden with special effects, everything you will see on stage is the real deal! Metal bars will break over the heads of performers, they'll impale themselves on spears and perform spectacular physical stunts and manoeuvres. Kung Fu is what the show is based on but audiences will also be treated to Chinese cultural dances, traditional Chines Lion dancing and a spectacular ballet performance, it simply has to be seen to be believed!
For over one and a half thousand years, in the remote province of Henan, China, a special group of Zen Buddhist Monks have risen each day before dawn to pray and meditate, this practice still continues to this day, and this ritual lead to the birth of Kung Fu. Shaolin Kung Fu has become a reference for the martial arts and has progressed through more than five generations of development. While the love of traditional Kung Fu is entrenched in the hearts of martial arts enthusiasts, Shaolin Kung Fu is experiencing a strong revival. With blockbuster films such as The Matrix Trilogy, Charlies Angels and Kill Bill, interest in Kung Fu is at an all time high. Get ready because this amazing show delivers much more than one might expect!
Members of the Shaolin Kung Fu Spectacular troupe have performed before royalty at the International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo! This festival is regarded as the greatest circus festival in the world, and is now in it's 30th year of operation. It was whilst performing at this auspicious event that the troupe were awarded more than once, the highest honour of the prestigious Golden Clown Award in honour of their acrobatic prowess! It was only natural that international acclaim should follow them wherever they may travel.
The Shaolin Warriors Kung Fu Spectacular will enlighten your perspective as never before, bring the whole family!
