The other discovery is Contact Juggling. I've seen performers with 'the balls' and wondered what is was called. The first place I witnessed it was of course in the film 'Labryrinth' with David Bowie., and I've just found out that he had a shadow performer behind him during filming to show the moves. The upshot of this was I found myself parting with £6.50 in Oddballs in Camden, and I've been practising. It's fairly difficult, but I find it easier than 'toss' juggling (yes, it's really called that), and I can nearly perform a butterfly palm transfer. I have an idea for an act which is rather cosmic, and I'd like to include the skill within the act, but we'll see, I might just be shit.
Anyway, here's Bowie..
It's such a lovely night, the audience are so appreciative, and I'm looking forward to finally meeting Fancy Chance and Des O'Connor.
The only other performer from the line up I've previously met is Vie O'Lette - we met over two years ago at Starlett Sta's Burlesque in Portsmouth.
I'll be taking some photos to include here next week.
