Surprising performance, with a rhythm that has not dropped for a moment. Simply brilliant!

I wasn't sure what to expect - but this was graceful, skilled and mesmorising. The speed and sheer acrobatic brilliance were awesome and each artist smiled throughout. Clearly part of a much bigger, large scale performance in Taiwan this was a unique glimpse of something special. Definitely go.

Fast paced, incredible moves and the way the acrobats can bend like rubber is amazing. Well worth seeing

This is a show that should have queues around the block, with those without tickets begging and opening their wallets to bribe ticket holders to sell their tickets to them. It was brilliant and beautiful.
