The much-loved acrobats from the Guangzhou Acrobatic Arts Theatre will be back in Thailand in October performing their new exciting stunts in “The Legendary Swordsman”, a brand new show adapted from the classic novel by Louis Cha.

The shows take place from October 5 to 7 and again from October 9 to 14 at the Thunder Dome, Muang Thong Thani.

In 1999 and 2005, more than 100,000 Thai fans were left stunned at the jaw-dropping feats of the Guangzhou acrobats and this year promises to be even better as they perform stunning moves based on “The Legendary Swordsman” or “Dej Khamphee Thevada” as it’s known in Thai. 

The story uses political satire and a hint of romance to recall the time China was going through drastic social changes under the Communist party. The novel has been adapted into a number of movies, TV series as well as cartoons.

As always, audiences will be left in awe at the phenomenal acrobatic performances as well as the elaborate costumes, stage sets and lighting. 

There will be two performances daily, one at 2.30 and the second at 6.30pm. Tickets cost from Bt700 to Bt 1,500 and are already on sale at ThaiTicketMajor counters and online at
