Nights at the circus

The Thousand-Hand Bodhisattva is a beautiful and enchanting dance performed by twenty-one members of the China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe; all of the dancers are deaf.
Via The Athanasius Kircher Society.




Greg Kennedy, the Innovative Juggler, performs nifty juggling tricks with unusual props and setups. Google Video has Juggling in an Inverted Cone, plus a few short clips from his stage performances, including the very cool Boxes. Many more on YouTube.
Via Wohba!.





A very flexible gymnast.
Via Look At This....




Crazy Bike is a sort of acrobatic performance of ballet-on-a-bicycle, stunning talent displayed on the modest stage of a high-school gym.




Quebec performer Michel Lauzière uses a variety of unorthodox instrumentation to perform familiar tunes. In the first video, he plays Mozart's Symphony No. 40 with wine bottles, on rollerblades. In the second, he performs a selection of tunes in a bike-horn jumpsuit, and the third is a series of clips of his other performances, including some wineglass music and non-musical antics with some kind of strange yellow balloon.
Via A Sweet, Familiar Dissonance.
