Going for the Jugular with Combat Juggling
Part friendly circus act, part vicious duel: welcome to the world of combat juggling. Unlike the variety show clowns that would entertain you as a child, combat juggling is no joke; this is a competitive contact sport and there can only be one person left standing … er, juggling. We caught up with Sam Malcolm, an avid combat juggler who is taking the sport to new heights.

“We are delighted to welcome the International Jugglers’ Association to El Paso for the first time and even more excited to have El Paso as their first Texas host city.” said Bryan Crowe, general manager for Destination El Paso. “Unlike other, more traditional conventions, the community is encouraged to come and view around-the-clock juggling, four evenings of shows and championship competitions, over a hundred workshops, and other special events.”
Cientos de artistas, malabaristas y acróbatas serán los que por esta semana se estarán presentando en el Teatro Plaza, dando muestra de sus habilidades y talentos, los cuales los llevan a recorrer el mundo.
