Circus Smirkus 2007: Jacob and Nate Sharpe
« on: August 15, 2007, 05:28:00 pm »
This is a video of the tricks we did in the diabolo act from this summer's show. the rest of the tricks were pretty basic, and Nate had to leave the tour early, so we didn't get as much good footage, hence the cuts. the umbrella whip trick was taken from a video of a show the MFP did; it fit very well in the act, and the as its only for one summer, and isn't something that we make money on, I thought it would be okay to include:

enjoy!

oh and and there's a typo in the opening information: its supposed to be smirkus not smrikus

Oh man, I've just started the video and I love it. Great group work.

*after watching*
Love the piros in between your vertax passing and the absolute solidness of your exchange afterwards. I doubt the audience knows how much of a treat it's getting by getting to see you two.

I love solid duo stuff. One diabolo passing and vertax passing was just what I love.

They have before :D.

Great Video!
Your Circus Smirkus performances I've seen are always filled with such energy and it gets the crowd going wildly!

I love all the partner/passing stuff you guys come up with - be it with one diabolo and set of sticks, multiple diabolo passing, or vertax passing - it's all super!

I didn't even think about it or read the comments, I just hit download.  If it's the Sharpes, then it's gonna be good, and boy it's good.  I love the act you guys have as your clowning fits the diabolo perfectly and your skills do diabolo proud.

Good work guys!  What a way to make a living.

Two MIT graduates well future graduates that plan to be performers?  Really cool performance.  I love the 3 low passing, excalibur passing (especially the genocides), and just everything that you do.  I just wish that you did more 3 low stuff besides just 42*  ;)  Btw, when do you think the next you'll coming to stunt team is?

@ josh. We were spending all our time practicing the duo stuff, so the solo stuff was just what I could do w/out practice. with nate gone, I do 10 ott of around the arm, and fts 2-3-2 in low, then stop, then (3)42344145141(3) in high. I don't know about stunt, have fun at the camp.

Thanks for all the praise guys! The excalibur sequence was definitely one of the most difficult in the act, and we may have hit a few kids in the face over the course of the summer, but it was definitely worth it when we got it.  The costumes were not, in fact embarrassing, at least for us.  They were actually some of the best costumes I've seen, especially from as small a production as we are.  But then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder  ;)

Great show - it has the skills / performance & showmanship all in there (& I like the costumes too ;)).  Plus it looks like you're having fun and thats the most important bit - I would happily pay good money to see that live.

I like that exploded sprinkler exit to stopover - simple but very visual - Good work

I loved the intro set, the duicide pass, the mini-gen thing, etc, you guys pull it off in such a smooth and professional way. Great video!
