Cirque Shanghai Bai Xi!


Cirque Shanghai Bai Xi!

By Joanne M. Choi for AsianBoston Magazine

Thousands of years ago, in the time of the Han dynasty, Chinese acrobatic spectacles were performed for the enjoyment of Chinese emperors. It was called “Bai Xi,” which translates to “100 Amazing Acts.”

Now, you too can experience this display as Cirque Shanghai! Cirque Shanghai Bai Xi is coming to the Lynn Auditorium on January 8, 2012.

There are a total of fourteen acts in this show that include feats of artistry honed from long ago, to modern acts performed by twenty-four Chinese acrobats. Think balancing acts, martial arts, plate spinning, ballet, contortion, and traditional costumes to dazzle the eyes and senses. According to Miao Miao Chen, theatrical director, “Cirque Shanghai Bai Xi show is family friendly. Everything's so real and the audiences will enjoy that direct connection to the performers and will have fun and a lasting memory!"

The performers hail from southern China and have worked on this show for six months prior to bringing the show to the U.S. They have been touring the U.S. for the past year. Miao Miao Chen also shared, “The show theme is the evolution of Chinese acrobatic history from the traditional to the modern. Such as [a dancer performing] pointe ballet while balancing on a guy’s shoulder and head, representing the new China. The audience will remember the incredible acts, the exotic colorful costumes, the Chinese feel with modern beat music.” When pressed, she finally admitted to some favorite acts, “The swing pole act, shoulder ballet act, and straw man. It shows what the human body can do, every pose is like a piece of art. She bends backwards as well [shoulder ballet act]. During the swing pole act, the male performer swings from across the stage, flying from stage left to right and then grabs poles with his legs.”

Seeing the photos of the performers precariously balancing in ways that are hard for me on ground level made me realize how easy they make it look. Sometimes, it is the triumvirate of anticipation, anxiety, and amazement that create a stellar experience!

Purchase tickets online at www.lynnauditorium.com for the 3pm show. Each act is 45 minutes with a 20 minute intermission.

Tickets start at $27 and doors open at 2pm.

Asian|Boston Radio Launches On WUNR 1600AM! First Show This Sunday at 11:30am!

Hi Everyone!

Asian|Boston Radio Launches On WUNR 1600AM!
Brought to you by The Q Restaurant www.thequsa.com & Chinatown Main Street Festival www.chinatownmainstreet.org.

First Show...this Sunday, June 12th, 2011, at 11:30am!
This is just before Asian|Boston Television at 12noon on WBIN-TV!

BOSTON – Asian|Boston Media Group, New England’s premier and only Asian-targeted outreach platform launches Asian|Boston Radio on WUNR 1600AM, one of Massachusetts oldest ethnic radio stations covering 4 million residents in the region. The Asian|Boston program will start airing on Sunday, June 12, 2011, and runs from 11:30am to noon every Sunday. Then, tune into Asian|Boston TV at 12noon!

In the last decade, the Asian American population in metro Boston grew by a startling 70%, and is projected to grow at a similar rate for the next ten years. With over a quarter million Asian Americans living in Massachusetts, the launch of Asian|Boston Radio becomes a key medium for community building and cultural awareness, as well as for businesses to reach out to this expanding market.

“Many business owners we speak to reveal that their Asian clientele make up 20% to 50% of their revenue. Asian|Boston Radio’s comprehensive coverage on events, fashion, music, cuisine, businesses and people enables companies and their services to become relevant to this community,” says Matt Casey, Programming Director of Asian|Boston Radio. “As the only media group interacting intensively with this niche market, we play a critical role in keeping up with the Asian heritage and its development.”

Asian|Boston’s radio program is the latest addition to its multichannel outreach mediums, which includes TV, print magazine, event, casting and online media. Since 2005, the company strives to provide a comprehensive view of the Asian community through its multifaceted broadcast programs.

AB|TV Casting for Asian Owned or Asian Related Businesses!

Hi Everyone!

We are excited to announce that AsianBoston Media Group, and our AB|TV division, is in collaboration with a major television station to broadcast our upcoming shows! This station reaches over 4 million households in New England, and also expands the entire east coast.

Our first AB|TV season planned, 13 episodes, will be A|B Business Spotlight, in which our co-hosts will visit and feature two of our local Asian owned businesses for each episode; approximately 12-14 minutes each in duration. This totals 26 businesses for our first season.

Here is the fun stuff! We are auditioning Asian owned or Asian related businesses to spotlight.

This is a great opportunity for your business to be featured on a major broadcast station, and this type of exposure will be worthwhile. This type of media avenue usually costs thousands to facilitate, but because of our past work, AB|TV was offered a very reasonable air-time rate. We will pass that savings onto our clients. In addition, or as substitute, please inquire about opportunities for commercial slots, logo or product placement, branding partnership, etc.

Other good news: The spotlights will also be available to view online after broadcast at our newly developed AsianBoston website, which launches on February 15th.

Note: At this point, spots are filling up quickly. We already have 12 businesses interested, so please, do not hesitate on this offer.

Please contact us now for complete details at info@asianboston.com .

Thank you so much.
