Hi-ten Circus started to put on shows in China in 2015 and has gained quite a lot positive feedbacks. After the Sanya and Lijiang shows, Yichun show becomes a high point in the development of local Tourism.

Of the 13,000-square-meter performance venue, 2300 square meters are the busking area, leaving enough space for 1600 audience to enjoy the show. The big tent, wholly designed and built by Italians, is constructed as a European castle framed with steels and stuffed with PVC materials. Sitting in the tent with a diameter of 50 meters, each audience can clearly see the shows owing to the stadium seating and have an audiovisual feast with the stage designed following Colosseum and supplementary Lighting and sound.

It’s the first time for circus to show in Yichun, generating new cultural elements for local tourism. The shows include animal performances, dance, juggling, waggery, magic, high altitude performance and other exciting contents. Each performance has been carefully selected to create a top luxurious audiovisual feast.
