The Peking Acrobats®

Grades K-12

Hailing from the People’s Republic of China, The Peking Acrobats® bring a 2,000-year-old tradition to the stage, performing daring maneuvers while displaying incredible technical prowess at such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control—all accompanied by live musicians, skillfully playing traditional Chinese instruments.

“The acrobats celebrate the
majesty of the human body in a
spellbinding show of movement!”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden with our Art Talks program!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.
