SHAOLIN is a display of theatre and physical prowess in which the cast perform "superhuman" feats. The show combines traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, inch perfect choreography with dramatic lighting and sound that evokes the spirit of their tradition – their Temple being the birthplace of Kung Fu. These are the very best Shaolin Kung Fu experts on the planet and they have come together to create this show. The Shaolin Monks are lifted aloft on sharpened spears, break marble slabs with their heads, perform handstands on two finger tips,splinter wooden staves with their bodies, break bricks on their heads and fly through the air in a series of incredible back flips. The show embarks upon a three-week run at The Peacock Theatre, London from 29 September – 17 October 2015.
