I’ve been interested in finger dexterity for a while, it directly relates to my job. So I enjoyed this new finger dance video that’s doing the rounds. The idea is not new- finger dances have been around for a while but it’s nice to see things moving in different directions. Also worth a look is Greg Irwin’s finger ballet/fitness (video below).
A fantastic recreation by a fanatical fan…

Already this morning I’ve watched two videos which have amazed and inspired me (isn’t the internet marvellous?)! Both are juggling videos and have some very nice and original content. Interestingly (at least for me) in both cases I see similar inspirations that have been a starting point for some of my latest work, thoughts and ideas.
Obviously carried out (and I have to say, producing better results) in a very different direction to mine. Clearly both videos have other insparations mixed in, as well as a different starting point and intention. It’s not ground breaking stuff to say everyone is different but I like being reminded of it now and again!
Send me some nice acrobatic/aerial videos please!

I have to be honest – I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to ‘juggling with a message’ style pieces. One of my guilty pleasures.
Back when men were real men, and women were real women and fuzzy little green creatures from Alpha Centauri were REAL fuzzy little green creatures from Alpha Centauri (1960) these guys were performing crazy tricks in Circus Knie…
I love tricks.
Thanks to Norbi for pointing this one out to me.
I have the studio at Circus Space for the day so I’m playing with a possible set up for the show. It’s proving to be a lot of fun!
I love the editing style, so different from western TV….
