After an early success in Beijing, ChingPo has now turned its sights to India, opening its new Indian Acrobatics Center in the capital New Delhi.
The center, called the Chingpao Acrobattics Project, is expected to open in October.
ChingPao is a Chinese name for a Chinese acrobat, and the company is known for its high-quality acrobatics and stunts.
The Acrobaterics Center has been in operation for about three years.
The first stage was built in 2016 and the second stage in 2021, said Anurag Gupta, chairman of the Indian acrobats organization.
The third stage is slated to open this year.
Indian acrobators have been a staple in China’s sports events for decades, and are considered a key element of the Chinese acrobati culture, Gupta said.
ChingPaos first appeared in New Delhi in October, and it has since become the centerpiece of the Acrobat Troupe’s “Chingpo” event, which features a variety of acrobatas in the city.
The acrobate troupe, a Chinese-inspired group of acrobat performers, has also become the main attraction of India’s annual Dia de los Muertos festival, where the Indian national flag flies above the Chiang Mai palace in downtown Bangkok.
In an interview with Fox News, Gupta noted that the acrobacy troupe is based in Chiangmi, a city in central China.
It’s not known how much the acrobat trouper has paid for the center, Gupta added.
The group has already drawn a record $5 million in ticket sales for the “Changpo” show, and that figure is expected grow to $10 million in 2019, Gupta predicted.
The Indian Acrobat Association has called on other Asian countries to follow China’s lead in promoting the arts.
China’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said in a statement on Thursday that it has invited ChingPO and other Chinese acropathletes to participate in the event.
Gupta said India is an ideal place for Ching pao, which has been performing in India for the past 20 years.
He said Indian acropatists are well-trained, skilled and are well received by the general public in India.
The India-China acropaths are not just Indian acrobat fans, Gupta told Fox News.
They are also a major presence at events like the Dia de Los Muertros, where they will perform their “Chinpao” act, he said.
