Festival Report フェスティバル レポート 2017
Over on Ao-odori Street was a performer. This performer really has a passion for juggling and everything related to the circus.
Kent started juggling at the age of 17 with golf balls, but eventually graduated to red balls about the size of melons. He ended up juggling 7 of these balls at the same time during his performance.
Now at the age of 22, Kent is a 4th year at Japan's only Circus School in Gunma Prefecture.
The training shows, as he was able to pull off incredible feats, such as stacking 4 poles (2 meters each) on top of each other, balancing it on his forehead, and throwing a ball into a cup on the top of the pole.
Throughout the act there was an impeccable sense of rhythm as he managed to finish complicated tricks at the height of the songs. And even when there was a mistake, his youth and charisma carried him to a wonderful finish.
His final act involved him riding a unicycle while simultaenously juggling 5 balls and balancing one of the balls on top of his head. (I can't believe I can write that sentence in context)
If you get a chance, please take the time to see this wonderful performer. (Part Time American)
