This year-end, we are proud to present the Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe with their magical 3D theatre performance, “Adventures of the Monkey King: The Golden Hooped Rod”.

This theatrical production that will no doubt remind its viewers about the beauty of live theatre and culture, is another example of how the eternal battle between good and evil never gets old as a storyline. Performed by talents from all over China specializing in acrobatic performances, who are also members of the National Performing Art Troupe; the plot, though predictable, unfolds in a thrilling manner in this production.

Assistant General Manager of the Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe, An Nan gave a brief introduction of the troupe and the show. “Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe was founded back in 1957, and we have been around for 60 years now. It’s never been easy. With hard work and perseverance, we have performed in most of the states in China; we have also been to more than 40 countries including US, UK, France, Italy, and Russia. The troupe has won numerous awards from acrobatic competitions and also winning the highest honor at the festival, Président de la République prize at Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain (Worldwide Festival of the Circus of Tomorrow). Acrobatic has been around for more than two thousand years, and the actions challenge the limit of the body. With acrobatic moves, music, and dance, magic tricks and 3D technology, Adventures of the Monkey King: The Golden Hooped Rod is bound to be a spectacular show happening in Resorts World Genting this November.” 

Adapting the story of the Monkey King, the show has played in Nanjing Cultural Arts Centre, Lian Yun Gang Culture Artistic Centre, Nanjing Sun Palace and Shanghai Poly Theatre since 2016, receiving a tremendous response. This will be their first performance out of China.

The story begins in the event after the Monkey King has claimed the Golden-Hooped Rod from the East China Sea. It is discovered that the enemy of the rod, Chi You, has also been released, and now intends to destroy it.

Some of the beautiful performances by the team.

In order to battle Chi You, the Monkey King and the rod must work together and go through Mana Practice, an exercise that enhances one's life energy. The Monkey King manages to master the ability, but then the rod reveals its weakness—something that Chi You is also aware of.

As it turns out, Chi You manages to lure the rod back to the East Coast Sea and imprison it. This, of course, leads to the ultimate battle between the Monkey King and Chi You.

I really enjoyed myself throughout the performance. The visual and the performance has really captivating and it makes this show way enthralling to watch. The acrobatics is really outstanding and we have enjoyed all the performance and the show they have performed. Definitely worth to watch it!
