A decade after its debut in China, the Canadian entertainment company is now returning with an ambitious plan: to bring a touring show to the country every year in addition to a resident show in Hangzhou

Having grown up in a remote village in Anhui province, where more than 70 percent of China's circus performers come from, Yao Dengbo learned how to be an acrobat when he was just 6 years old.

What started out solely as a means of providing for his family soon turned into a passion. In 2007, Yao was spotted by a talent scout during a street performance in the US and was urged to audition for Cirque du Soleil's new show Kooza.
