The Kid Should See This

Contact juggling with street music

Watch this young Switzerland-based performer and contact juggler in an impromptu sidewalk performance with an upright bassist and an accordionist. This kind of contact juggling is a style of object manipulation that mixes body rolling — moving the ball around the body — and a sleight-of-hand technique called “isolation” that makes the ball look like it’s suspended in place. Clear balls help with this illusion because you can’t see the ball spin.
