A major circus festival in China is definitely in full swing. Thirty companies from around the world are taking part in the event. A highlight from Thursday’s shows was some stunning bar work. Let’s head to the southern city of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province now to have a look.

Shows like these make you hold your breath, as performers from Cuba, with no safety ropes, ensure their timing is perfect. 5 flips in mid-air later and this acrobat lands safely on the bar.

We caught up with the Cuban team on their last training routine before the show.

Another festival highlight is the Aerial Russian Swing, a truly hair-raising trapeze show.

The festival runs until December the first, so come and witness some heart stopping action for yourself.
