Peking Acrobats 

When: Sat., Jan. 25, 2 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 26, 3 p.m. 2014
Price: $22
In 1999, the Peking Acrobats set an unusual world record: They created the tallest human chair stack — six people stacked onto seven chairs holding a handstand for five seconds. The world-famous troupe — which will perform this weekend at UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Hall (Bancroft Way at Telegraph Ave.) — first began performing in North America in 1986 and quickly rose to fame, appearing on shows such as Nickelodean’s Unfabulous and in the movie Ocean’s Eleven. Its performance at Zellerbach will include tricks such as balancing a human pyramid on top of a moving bicycle, juggling hats and jars with both hands and feet, spinning plates, and wire-walking. The group’s dazzling acrobatic feats will be accompanied by a live musical performance by Jigu! Thunder Drums, featuring musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments.
