Posted:Please read the "posting guidelines":



- you may post links to or videos from artists you reckon should be noticed by the community

- this artist should not be your self!

- there is no specific field (firedancing, juggling, performance, pantomime, what so ever - but it should be an art visible)

- please tell us "why" you think we should notice this artist and then post the link/ embed the video

- please do stand back from applauding posts/ artists, WITHOUT posting a (great) video .... wink

- please do refrain from chit chatting or discussion

- please do not post without a link or video embedded, I would like to see quality - not quantity of posts...



Let me give an example and start with the German juggler



Oliver Groszer



and link to his website/ videos. Please excuse that there is so much German involved, but I am certain the pictures speak for themselves.



I think he should be in here, because his way of displaying his art to the audience is so innocent and intriguing. He makes it look easy and - even though some of his tricks are not extraordinary - catches the audience.



I guess that the community can highly profit from watching t/his act.



Ta-daa: Ladies and Gentlemen, please watch - Oliver Groszer

Posted:wow, that's awesome FireTom, thanks.



The juggler was very impressive, I'd heard a long time ago from SpareHemmens about a guy who could kick a teaspoon to a head balance, nice to see it done.



But the laser guy totally stole the show.

Posted:Whoa! That Dan Dunn video was great. Thanks!

one of my favorite artists....

http://misery.subnet.at/

DeadDreamer does a lot fo art for europian metal/industrial groups' cds. He also does webpage development...which you will see. I find his pages a little TOO much kinda makes it hard to get around and see his stuff. But if you go to that page, you can look around then make sure you check out "V12 wallpapers" those are some of my favorite images.

I really enjoy the mood of most of his stuff. It's pretty dark.

Note: Some images may contain partial nudity.

Posted:Cheers, very good video indeed. Here's a few videos of amazing performers.

Can't go past this for glowstringing goodness:

One of my favourite contact juggling performances:

Amazing Baton twirling (although I don't like her costume/expression)

http://youtube.com/watch?v=GAS3NRYiLiI

Gene Kelly Tap Dancing on Roller Skates:

The best Tutting I've seen on the net yet:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=2r8039mI4Ac

And that'll do from me for now. It's so hard because there's so many good performances on the net. Enjoy. Sorry if I've posted too much.

Posted:Pogo - your post is pretty close to chat, letting you get away with it for now wink

I'm posting the following video for two (very obvious) reasons - if you watch it you will notice for yourself

Nick - you're a star hug

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=VhWmJs8-d2c

PS: And I don't understand why the video is not embedded anymore, when I'm using 'URL' and paste the url twice umm confused

Nick - you're a star hug







it's a common bug with youtube embedding - most scripts don't accept 2nd level domains if they ain't 'www'

Nick is awesome, however you should grab an old copy of COL videos to see Pyrotechnique (Cairns, AU) who influenced Yuta. Obviously i'm not gunna post COL footage...so just image that this is him:
