bad1dobby

2 young boys from Beijing (Peking) Acrobatic Troupe juggling china jars/pots at 10th Cirque de Demain 1987. Gold medal. Jar juggling is a traditional Chinese acrobatic form, but is more commonly done as a solo act. Doing it in duo opens up lots of possibilities.

duo bowl kicking on rola bola - Cirque de Demain 1995

bad1dobby

Chongqing Troupe duo bowl kicking on rola bola. 18th Cirque de Demain 1995. Silver medal. Not actually bowl-kicking as such, more bowl-flicking really. But it's a variant of the classic Chinese bowl-kicking act which is usually performed on unicycles.

Ra Ra Zoo - Live at the Swan Theater

LP

Documentary/Showreel about British "new circus" troupe Ra Ra Zoo and their show "Live at the Swan Theater". Not sure about the date as I can't make that out at the end, but it's some time in the late 1980s-early 1990s I think. Video features what looks like a young Sean Gandini to me, which would make it pre-1992

Russian acrobatic juggling troupe ca.1990

bad1dobby

Russian passing troupe, with acrobatic balances. From Finnish TV series called "Russian Circus" approx 1990. Most notable for the unusual version of the old "runaround with a hat" trick. We think it may be an earlier generation of the Teslenkos. Update: identified by Tesldima as "Semen Orlov, Yurij Bichkov, Anatolij Teslenko, Elina Teslenko"

trident manipulation - Chinese male duo

bad1dobby

2 male Chinese acrobats performing with tridents. I do not know which troupe they are from. This skill is sometimes called Fei-cha. It is a traditional Chinese acrobatic form. The tridents have loose elements at the head, which creates the characteristic jangling noise. From a video titled Chinese Acrobatic Feats.

unicycle bowl kicking on globe - MCCF 1987

bad1dobby

The extraordinarily talented Fu Xiuyu from the Changchun Acrobatic Troupe, at the 12th Monte Carlo Circus Festival (1987), kicking multiple bowls up to her head while on a giraffe unicycle ... on a rolling globe! Astonishingly the act did not win either a gold or silver clown, but the Changchun troupe, which presented this act and a highwire act, won "Monaco City Prize" and "Monte Carlo TV Station Prize".
