Video of young woman performing an elegant, circus juggling routine

Folks,

In a thread some posts down, That girl and her bike, I mentioned the difference between bicycle performers and competitors.

This video of a young woman's (Lena Smaha) juggling routine (about 1'05") is a good example of how a circus performer incorporates dance moves and poses into an act, instead of striving to make straight lines. It's also a beautiful routine.

AFAIK, the idea of "juggling" suspended objects was first developed by Jorg Müller at the National Circus School in France. It's nice to see other artistes expanding on Jorg's idea.

Cool



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

The balls are suspended on string and thrown in different directions. Getting them to do what you want them to, in the correct sync, is the trick.

It's very cool, but it's not really juggling, per se. Manipulating tethered objects violates one of the key tenets of juggling, which is that the juggler(s) alone (well, with gravity) control(s) the movement of the objects in motion.

Edited to change juggler to juggler(s) and control to control(s).
