The Kid Should See This

Balance: Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque artist Maedir Eugster

Balance is a short film by photographer/director Tobias Hutzler that documents Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque artist Maedir Eugster’s incredible balancing act. If you saw Eugster’s tension-filled, unedited, almost 13-minute viral performance that aired on Japanese television — and if you haven’t, you should — then this will look familiar.

While one video is more succinct, the other is filled with great suspense! Which version of the act do you prefer watching?

In the archives: more performances and more balance.
