When is the festival?

Performing / Chalk/Rosin?

So I've recently started performing in a tent, and I've found that the extra humidity from being outside is making my four diabolo start almost impossible. My hands get too sweaty by that point in the act, and the diabolos slip from my fingers before I can finish my throw. I was thinking about putting chalk or rosin on my hands, but it makes me nervous. In the one diabolo part of my act, I touch the diabolo a lot with my hands and I'm worried that chalk would get on the axle and eventually the string.

I was wondering what you all have done to deal with sweaty hands in performance? Has anyone found something that doesn't make the string gross?

Would this be open to Diaboloists from North America as well?

Hi guys!

Let me know what you think!

Last October I was lucky enough to go to France to perform at the Circa festival in Auch. Me and another student from my circus school, l'Ecole de Cirque de Quebec, met up with 3 students from the AMOK circus school and spent 5 days making a show. Here is the video! My part begins at about 13:30, there is also some cool ring juggling, straps and duo trapeze.

Some of my favorite 2d stuff I've seen in a long time!

As far as changing up the vibe goes, the simplest place to start in my opinion would just be to stop moving the camera around so much. it would probably change the way we see your tricks a whole lot (who knows in a good or bad way)

Thanks for all the great feedback! I just added a youtube link in case vimeo doesn't work (it usually doesn't work on my computer), and so you can find my old videos and stuff.

Thanks guys, I"m glad you liked it!

Arjan- Sorry about the framing. I didn't get a chance to review the film before my friend edited it or I would have asked him to use some further shots. I'll put out a practice video sooner or later with head on still shots of a lot of this stuff

Scharling- Circus school is great! I've had a lot of time to explore new stuff and work on some harder technique (although that last part didn't really make it in the video). Its great to be able to train all of the time.

Hey guys!
I made a video around this time last year and I figured it was time for a new one.
These are some of the things I've been working on, but I don't have a lot of new sequences at the moment so its a lot of improvisation as well.
I hope you like it!

Do you do anything to warm up before practicing? Maybe try working your way up to four by doing some simple stuff 2 or 3 first just to make sure all your joints are awake. I know my shoulder/wrist have been killing me when I work on my 3/4 high and if I don't stretch and then do some little 1d tricks that use my full range of motion (only like 5/10 minutes total of warm up) then I feel terrible. If that doesn't work maybe take a week or two off or go see a physical therapist.
