Festival Report フェスティバル レポート 2016
A world juggling champion, Yuusaku Mochizuki's performance includes tap dance and diabolo juggling in the daytime and is intensified by the use of visuals and sound effects after dark. To be able to see such a performance here is Shizuoka is a spectacular opportunity.
At Daidogei this year, he has decided to try new and different things and will be performing three different types of shows for us. It will be fun to watch no matter how many times you see it.
In the midst of our changing world, his work takes elements of every day feelings, good and bad discomfort and combines them in his juggling. What emotions will his performance evoke each time? Enjoy watching while you find out!
Today, we covered his daytime tap dance and diabolo juggling performance. Despite being a weekday, a large crowd gathered in anticipation of his performance titled "Not White, Not Black." His diabolo juggling and music began, greeted by the applause of suit-clad businessmen gathered in the audience. With large movements, tosses and even one handed juggling, it was impossible to take your eyes off of him. His costume and movement changes left the audience in awe throughout his performance.
Yuusaku, a Shizuoka native, gave this message to his audience. "I'm glad that everyone at the (Daidogei) World Cup always enjoys my performances. It's an honor to be able to perform in Shizuoka every year."
Make sure to check out his performance at this year's Daidogei!
