  By Wan Xuming

  Jointly organized by Wuhan Municipal People's Government, the China Acrobats Association, and the China Arts and Entertainment Group, the 12th Wuhan International Acrobatics Art Festival of China (IAAF) was held in Wuhan from Oct. 28 to Nov. 2, offering local residents the chance to feast their eyes on acrobatic displays performed by artists from around the world. During the festival, there were 24 wonderful performances by artists from 13 countries who competed for a variety of awards. The program included stage, trapeze, and comical acrobatics, magic shows, and trained animal performances. The Wuhan Acrobatic Troupe presented a children’s program, “The Memory of Old Hankou.” Its acrobatic performance integrated local elements such as rickshaws, bamboo beds, the chessboard, and the stove that sells youtiao (Chinese fried dough sticks), all functioning as a reminder of the old city and hometown. The Flying Trapeze & Silks performance shown on the cover page in the last issue of Changjiang Weekly received the Yellow Crane Golden Award. This festival offered a favorable price for visitors. Tickets for day performances ranged from RMB 20 to 100. Tickets for the night shows were RMB 50 to 280. Founded in 1992, Wuhan International Acrobatic Art Festival of China is held biennially. The previous 11 festivals have attracted more than 200 skilled acrobats from over 50 regions and countries.
