Your ticket helps Lu Yi, an American Circus Legend

Lu Yi, an American Circus Legend

Lu Yi is the official charity of AcroSF 2018. Lu Yi has trained some of the best circus performers in the world; now he needs our help. Lu Yi has Parkinson's disease, a cruel irony for a man who's dedicated his life to the art of human bodies doing superhuman feats.

A portion of every AcroSF ticket will go to Lu Yi. We’re raising funds to fund his treatment and to allow Lu Yi to visit his home in China one last time while he is still mobile. Learn more about Lu Yi here.

Like many in the San Francisco circus community, the organizers of AcroSF, Neal and Illina, are former students of Lu Yi, and current students of his protege. We’re incredibly honored and filled with stoke that Lu Yi’s protege Xiaohong Weng will be teaching acrobatics (with his longtime acro partner Jennings) and handstands (with the inimitable Jiggidy Jives) at AcroSF. Learning from Xiaohong is a participation in a century of circus history.

AcroSF 2018 will donate a portion of proceeds to Lu Yi.

FAQ

Q: I'm traveling in. Where do I stay?

A: Yes, many will come alone, and many will come with a partner.
