IJA Tricks of the month by Victor Moiseev from Ukraine | Juggling balls

I specialize in horizontal juggling (aka pendulum juggling) with big balls, metal poles, and LED balls. I have been performing this act for 12 years now with this type of juggling and manipulation. Usually I don’t like to talk about strings and how I use them. I have been working on many different types of rigging. For some I use one point where is all connected, and others use different points. That’s why I call it horizontal juggling. Inspiration I take from Buster Keaton dinner 1920 -1923 where all the objects were connected to different points and he use comedy to pass objects to each other while eating dinner. I also like Jorg’s metal poles which are really nice and similar to what I do. Greg Kennedy’s work was very inspiring as well. I worked with him in Totem Cirque du Soleil where he also did some pendulum work as well. One of the major inspirations for me was Michael Mochen – I had a chance to do a tv show with him back in 2002. I take a lot of inspiration from him as well.
From my experience when you don’t see or mention strings, that has a more magical feeling.
People will comment about strings anyway and I believe more comments will bring more views for the video. 😉 Thank you for your interest in my work and I hope it will inspire others. I will do more regular juggling videos soon as well. Need time to get in shape.

The IJA actively searches out the best juggling talent around the world to make awesome videos for your viewing pleasure. Get ready to be inspired. IJA Tricks of the Month are organized by Jorge Vilchis, Erin Stephens and Lucas Adverse.
