It may sound counterintuitive, but the hottest trend in juggling these days is to lower the number of balls to one or two. Instead of trying to toss as many things as possible, it's all about finding new ways to move familiar objects. This style was first mastered by MacArthur Fellow Michael Moschen, who was the real hand rolling the ball back and forth behind David Bowie during that famous scene in Labyrinth. That scene was most of the world's introduction to the “flow arts.” But since that time, the style has taken the Bay Area juggling world by storm. The Flow Show will feature the best of this new crop of manipulation artists, as they roll, twirl, and dance with hoops, balls, staffs, poi, buugeng, and plenty of other props you've probably never heard of before.
