Russian bar performer TOMCHUK attracted the audience with their power and beauty.
Russian bar is one of the circus acts originally from Russia.

Zhenya, the flyer, jumps gorgeously with cool expression. He looks like a ballet dancer, and his grace makes the audience forget a dangerous position for a while.
Igor Tomchuk supports the performance physically as a porter, and mentally as a leader. After he had experienced various kinds of circus acts, he always has kept trying new performances. Now his Russian bar is above the balls!

In the year of celebrating their 15th birthday,
Canard Pekinois is back to Daidogei World Cup in Shizuoka
for the first time in the last 6 years!
Comedy, acrobat (probably), sumo wrestling, and falconer, ......
Two white-faced guys astonish the people on the street,
sometimes softly, and sometimes vigorously.
Canard Pekinois run around, or run over the venue
while presenting their performance.
The spectators are instantly engaged in the show
and soon to be enchanted by a surreal experience in the world of Canard Pekinois.
You cannot look aside while they are putting a signboard
that says "preparing" in front of them.
To the question asking their feel and impression about Shizuoka,
where they finally came back in six years, they said in calm but excitedly,
"the show must go on for 10 days!",
"too many people, many, many," and
"as a celebration of our 15th birthday,
our rushing souls are dedicated to the Mt. Fuji,
the World Heritage, no, the Universal Heritaeg!
This is the greatest honour to us!"
...... Their burning passion may not be fully conveyed here,
and the overwhelming universal-scale appeal proved their powers of persuasion.
Lastly, here is useful information for their fans.
You can see them in Shizuoka also after the Daidogei World Cup in Shizuoka.
Canard Pekinois, who are *not* Shizuoka-born,
but must have a great knowledge about Shizuoka more than ordinary Shizuoka people,
run a one-man art exhibition in Kawane Honcho by November 22, 2013.
Then they come down to Shizuoka city again to participate in Street Festival in Shizuoka 2013.
Look for "Taro Yasuda (安田太朗) on Facebook for more details.
Enjoy the different world of Canard Pakinois!

BLACK has been performing all over the world and making great breakthroughs.
Especially this year(2013), he performed at the Cirque du Soleil as the first yo-yo artist.
At this Daidogei World Cup in Shizuoka, his well-constructed performance includes;
various techniques with two yo-yos, the world's first "yo-yoing tablecloth pull-away", the thrilling "coin shot" with an audience, and the Japanese-inspired original Japaneseness piece performed at the Cirque du Soleil.
Audiences was always struck by his sensitive yet powerful performance.
He was slightly worried about the fan's reaction in Shizuoka since it had been a while to perform in Japan.
However, he felt reassured by warm-heartedly support of the fans here.
We can't keep our eyes off his performance - Don't miss it!
