Chinese Acrobatics with Li Liu

Join us for the fun, family-friendly show “Traditions of Chinese Acrobatics” with Li Liu! She will perform hand balancing, plate spinning, ribbon dancing, diabolos, and foot juggling. A limited number of volunteers will have the opportunity to join her on stage to create an impromptu ribbon dance, and also to try their hand at plate spinning. Educational connections are made with the Chinese language and culture. Li explains some of the rituals of Lunar New Year, teaches the audience some basic Chinese phrases, and encourages them to think about what it might have been like to grow up in a different time and place.

This program is aimed at kids of all ages and their families, but all are welcome. Free tickets are required and will be available at the Children’s Desk a half hour before the program begins.


This event is generously sponsored by the Brookline Library Foundation.
