An Inner Mongolia autonomous region acrobatic troupe has won the Golden Bear Award – the top prize at the International Circus Art Festival in Izhevsk, Russia.

The group was China’s sole representative at the festival, which ran March 6-10 and featured 21 troupes from 15 countries and regions, including the UK, France, Australia, and the US,

Their award-winning performance, Six Persons Kicking Bowls, was defined by a strong sense of ethnic identity and regional culture.

Each performer rode bicycles, while six young girls wearing bright costumes completed a series of breathtaking moves, with one managing to catch 28 bowls without pause.
