“Visually sumptuous… Immortal Chi is a heady and hypnotic cornucopia of contemporary culture and timeless tradition.”

- UK Theatre Network

 

“a multimedia experience with live music and impressive lighting throughout.”

- The Public Reviews

 

“If you want the highest level of martial arts, it’s here. If you want a stage rammed full of adrenalin packed stunts, it’s also here. If you want these elements wrapped around a story that brings a wider range of Chinese culture to the stage, this is without doubt the right show for you.”

- Martial Arts Illustrated

 

“A unique production which captured the traditional Chinese experience well for the Edinburgh crowd.”

- Just for Culture (Edinburgh Review)

 

“...the Chinese Girl Drummers are exceptional. The precision of their percussion is a perfect match for the pinpoint accuracy of the dancers. The rhythm of their drumming gradually gets under your skin generating excitement even when the action on stage is low-key.

- What's On Stage

 

“Using a fusion of spectacularly timed and executed Martial Arts moves, stunning projected images, a fantastic selection of costumes and an original musical score, the cast of over 20 performers lead us on a journey which features various set pieces that emphasise the incredible skill of the cast.”
