Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for electrifying and awe-inspir

ing Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海品茶微信

Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a venue for dance dra

上海品茶微信女神会所mas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.

After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perm

anent theme. Chinese acrobatics is a spectacular performance art characterized by amazing physical feat上海品茶微信

s and gravity-defying stunts, inspired by the struggle between humans and nature.

Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was in

上海品茶微信女神会所spired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app

eared during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). It was refined during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC

-AD 24), when pole climbing and tightrope walking debuted on stage. The most famous performance at that time, Gua上海品茶微信

ng Chang Bai Xi, saw a rich variety of acrobatic acts performed simultaneously in a public square.

Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, including up to four d上海品茶微信

aily shows in its 1,300-seat performance hall during peak season from May to October.

eight of the last 11 leagues and 10 of the last 15 (all 10 with Messi in the squad).

Earlier in the day, second-placed Atletico Madrid won 1-0 at home over struggling Valladolid to delay Barca’s celebrations.

  As the Vatican began a historic summit on combating clergy sexual abuse, pros

ecutors in the United States slammed the Catholic Church, saying it should not be trusted to police itself.

  In Michigan on Thursday, State Attorney General Dana Nessel held a press conference to update the public on her investigation of the state’s seven Cat

holic dioceses. In October, Michigan police seized hundreds of thousands of pages from church offices.

  Nessel’s office said it is investigating 300 tips and has asked the dioceses to suspend their own internal review processes until the investigation is over.

  At the press conference, Nessel said the dioceses should stop “self-pol

icing,” according to Detroit News. She also accused church officials of asking victims to r

eport abuse only to the dioceses and pressuring victims into non-disclosure agreements or confidential settlements.

  Nessel urged clergy sexual abuse victims to report their abuse to the police, not the church.
