Chinese State Circus

The show that has set the standard for all others to follow.

Chinese State Circus

The Chinese State Circus is the purest, most abiding, and most exhilarating circus show ever seen.

Two thousand years of tradition are brought to life in front of your eyes in the world’s greatest acrobatic spectacular.


Established in the 1990s after director Phillip Gandey witnessed a group of Chinese acrobats performing to great acclaim at the Monte Carlo Circus Festival. Astounded at the quality, depth and sheer diversity of Chinese acrobatic troupes Gandey World Class Productions figured out the logistics of transporting 45 artistes, plus directors, interpreters and five tonnes of props and equipment half-way around the world.

Recognised for his services to performing arts in China Phillip Gandey has been honoured for furthering the cultural links between China and the United Kingdom and has been appointed honorary director of the Changchung acrobatic troupe.

“As close as it gets to being the greatest show on earth.”

Daily Telegraph

“Spectacular, the most exhilarating circus is has ever been my privilege to see.”

London Evening Standard

“The evening is a fascinating demonstration of the difficulty of believing the evidence of your own eyes and a jaw-dropping denial of the flesh and the limitations of the human body. Spectacle meets perfection…”

The Guardian

“Nothing less than superhuman.”

The Scotsman
