Cirque Mei Gives Awe-Inspiring Performance

Cirque Mei, from the People’s Republic of China, gave an awe-inspiring performance for members of the Westminster community in Werner Centennial Oct. 15 as part of the Graham Gund ’59 Visiting Artist Series.

Cirque Mei features traditional and contemporary Chinese circus acts in a colorful and lively celebration of the internationally renowned Chinese circus arts. The performance featured a company of elite circus artists and acrobats showcasing popular Chinese circus routines involving hoop diving, a lion dance, collective bicycle skills, flying meteors, foot juggling with umbrellas, female contortion and ladder balancing. The troupe was founded in 1976 and supports a community of more than 130 circus performers who tour throughout China and the world.

Members of the Gund Family established the Graham Gund ’59 Visiting Artist Series fund in 1991 in honor of Graham Gund ’59 at his 50th birthday. Income from the fund underwrites the cost of bringing outstanding artists to Westminster to enrich students’ understanding and appreciation of the performing arts. The visiting artists perform in Werner Centennial Theater.
