Posted:I don't know if any one has posted about this before, or if any one is assosiated with them but the other night i saw there latest show.
and i must say it was fantastic they had a great combination of modern and tradtional circus and they also had relly good costumes and music. Another thing that i relly liked about there show was that it it relats to current isues around the world.

If they come your way i would recomend going to see there show.

ps.one of the girls in circus oz used this prop it was like two hoops next to each other with polls that join them you hold on to the poles and you role the hoops with you in side it looks like your doing a cartweel. i was wondering if any one knew what this was called or where i could get some information on said prop.

Pps. if that discription made no sense pleas tell me and i'll try again

Posted:yeah, those are fun. Cirque du Solie has (or used to haveat least) a guy that is (was?) really good with it. They have other performers that use it, but I haven't seen any of his substitutes be nearly as entertaining with it as he was.

The beginning of the Jackie Chan movie "supercop" has a brief comical segment with one near the beginning.

I seem to remember seeing one out at Burningman that had some additional gimmick with it - motorized or some such thing - I can't really remember as that memory seems to be kinda fuzzy for some odd reason... I could in fact be imagining the whole exerience in this case.
