So who is going to the biggest juggling convention in Munchen this year?

I'm going for the first time! I've been to the BJC once and that was big. How much bigger is the EJC?

Tricks / bloody clown integral
« on: May 26, 2011, 04:29:49 PM »
Hey all, Been away for a while but finally picked up diabolo's again!
Now for years of trying I still can't do this trick..

Could someone write me this trick out in detal in text?

I always catch the genocide btw!
And 1 question: If you have a green and pink stick. And you do the infinite with your pink stick do you have to catch the pink stick or the green stick after the integral?

Hope I can find out what I am doing wrong or what to do correctly if someone can write it down!

Ramon ( Going to EJC Btw! )

Performances / Where is Terrace or streetshowperforming legal
« on: April 06, 2011, 10:12:17 PM »
Hi their I got a few questions:
in wich big cities is performing in front of a terrace legal?

I would really like to go to Barcelona with someone and perform infront of terraces the whole day. I tried it out last year once. I got 10 euro in 2 minutes..

Second question: In wich big cities is doing a streetshow in the summer legal?
And wich way can earn you the most money if you have a good streetshow or short terrace show?

And are their cities where its not legal but where you can get an document to do it legal?

Sorry I only earn 6 euros an hour.. And I rather earn a bit more in the summer by doing my hobby then standing in the dishes the whole summer...
And are their cities where its not legal but where you can get an document to do it legal?

Thanks in advance! Hope someone knows this! Or got some experience with it.

Performing / My performance act idea
« on: August 17, 2010, 04:56:41 PM »
Hey their, So I would love to earn money with diabolo performances and a streetshow. But the thing with a performance is that you can't really ask 200 euro for standing 5 minutes on the stage doing some nice tricks. So in my opinion you have to make a show...
But making a show of like 15 - 20 min with just diabolo's is realy hard I think.

But I think that I have one talent that I could combine with my diabolo's. I'm always over enthousiastic, happy and I can talk alot.. Now over some years I've done some free performances and you notice that from the first time you step on the stage till every time on you dare more. Your tricks don't fail anymore and you dare to look at the audiance and play with them. Good example is Ben's performance at last years BJC :)

Now I wrote an act and I was wondering if its a good idea.
It goes something like this.

- Introduction
- Breaking the ice
- My diabolo's have been ( weggegoocheld )
At this part I want to say ''okay so now I'm actualy here to give you a diabolo show. But speaking of it.. Where are they?'' At this moment I want to act like someone is saying something true my ear or behind the screens and then I say ''What? You got to be kiding me right? So.. What do I do now? oh god.. '' And I'll say to the audiance that a few hours ago I was practicing here and I went to town and left my diabolo's on stage. And that their was a ( Magician?? ) ( dutch is goochelaar ) Who did a dissapearing act with a closet. And he needed something to dissapear so he took my diabolo's! But he forgot to appear them back..
- Brining them back
Now I want to have a reall disapearing closet and show the audiance its really empty and try to bring them back. But offcourse I can't do this cozz im not Hans Klok or any good magician.
- quick course of ( goochelen )
Here I was thinking of bringing something like a tv with a laptop or a computerscreen on stage and pretent that im trying to connect with a webcam to some magician. ( this could be me dressed up on a pre made video and we have a fake confersation so it looks real ) And this person teaches me how to do it. ) And then I really let them appear back.
- Freestyle routine of 5 min containing 1, 2, vertax and maybe 3 high.

Now the way I want to use to step out the box is to talk. Talk alot..
Íf I'm done I'll post a video on here in English to see if you like the way I bring it :)

Now this is it in big lines. I don't care if someone steals my idea cozz I can also look to an act an steal it and use it in my regio. But tell me what you think of it. And if the idea is good. On this way I'm filling up like 15 minutes before I start doing my diabolo routine.

Tricks / Is this possible?
« on: August 06, 2010, 11:02:19 PM »
Ok So I would love to have a own streetshow.. But you need a final trick and the best thing is if its dangerous..
Now I thought of something. But I don't know if its somewhat over the top :D

So its the following thing.

Put out some glass on the floor ( Most jugglers here should know that everyone can walk over glass and lay on it and you can trick people really simple with it.. )
Then I do an S-Fan while standing on the glass and then try to lay down on it. So laying on the glass while doing an S-fan.

Now I think that should be fine.. But how about this!
Using 2 fire diabolo's ( the finesse kits )
Putting some lamp oil in my mouth.
Then asking someone to hold a torch above my head and I spit the diabolo's on wihle lying on the ground?
It would be an amazing final trick! But I think ive gone to far :D


I wonder what kind of people or company's pay for the following kind of acts.. And how much you can ask for em..

1. A diabolo demostration normal 3 - 5 minutes no talking or with talking.
2. A Diabolo Light show 3 - 5 minutes or more where I talk. Or not..
3. A diabolo fire show 3 - 5 minutes or more.. Where I talk or don't talk..
4. A fire show with diabolo's, 3 clubs, and fire spitting? ( lol how do you call that ) for a few minutes.. Where I can talk or not..

Each shows are not ready yet.. Their just ideas of what I could think of and then create a show around it.. With talking and things and such.. And good music!

But I wonder how much I can ask for it if their really thoughtof shows. And what kind of people book these shows?

I'm sure a few of you have got experience for this.. I would ask like 50 euros for it.. But I know you will say that I can ask much more for it.. But how much? And who book it..

And then last question..

Could someone give me some tips on how to sell these kind of shows? I do have a nice website where I can put them on..
And perhaps a demo video of each show?

Performing / Questions on streetshows
« on: May 17, 2010, 09:22:04 PM »
Hey question..

I know that the sharpes from here have travled all over England performing an amazing streetshow! Wich contained awesome jugglingskills but most of performance skills.

Now I know that if they left out the amazing jugglignskills for just easy normal things and combining it with their performance skills. I think they would earn just as much money? Am I right on that? And that they have earned ENOUGH money to pay for their univirsity study..

Ok then..

My questions are:
1: Can you earn enough money in the summer in England with a streetshow if you perform it 5 - 6 times a day and everyday 6 days in the week all over England to live from a whole year?
2: If 1 is true.. Why don't more people try to write a streetshow and earn money with this? I know writing a good streetshow is hard.. But if you know you could earn ALOT of cash with it like if yur a student you can have more money then you earn if you have a small job 2 times a day at mc donalds..

I ask this because I wonder if I could earn alot of money with a good streetshow if I make one with friends.. I have the guts to do it and I'm sure I can write one if I do it with someone else..

And last question:
How much have people earned with it? Sharpes? Luke/paula ?


Why don't more people from here

Tricks / How high could you make a elevator go?
« on: January 03, 2010, 04:53:28 PM »
Hi I was wondering if its possible that if you take a really big piece of string and you speed it up. And someone else stands on top of something and you do the elevator. How high can it go?

Anyone ever tried this?

Hey their. On the 27th of Marc My class is going to organize a event in the city of Hardenberg. It will be for easter. Little kids can make a tour with 'palmpasenstok' and then they will be able to create the biggest banner of the Netherlands ( or as a guinness book of world record ).

Now the point is. Their will be alot of childern around in the city center. And my teacher had the idea of having several diabolist jugglers with their geater shatterd around the town doing tricks and teaching kids some diaboloing and let them play with it.

I was wondering if their were a view of you that would like to join into this event and stand in the town juggling and letting kids try it out.

Performing / Street juggling with a hat
« on: October 09, 2009, 12:22:52 PM »
Hello I have a few questions about juggling on the street.

If Anyone who tried it, what could you earn in a day?
Think if I go juggling a 4 ball pattern people will give me some money?
Will they give money faster then someone playing bad music ?

And could someone give me a few reasons why I should do it and not being afraid of not doing it?.. Thanks!

Community & Events / Dutch meeting over 2 weeks?
« on: October 08, 2009, 10:15:54 PM »
Hey fellow dutchers,

In 2 weeks we get the Atummn holiday for those who do not do university.. And I would like to organize an dutch diabolo day!

The only problem I am facing is that we need a gym in the middle of the country.. I could ask everyone to come over to my place but I don't really live that central.. If their is no other option then I could rent a gym over here..

If anyone here could hire a gym for 1 day and lives a bit centered we could arrange a nice diabolo day for dutchers!

Performing / What can I ask for this?
« on: September 30, 2009, 01:16:47 PM »
Hey I have been asked to give a 5 sesion workshops of each an hour. And I will bring 13 sets of diabolo's and give a demonstration.

They told me to tell them what I ask for this but I have NO idea!

If anyone has any suggestions or idea's that I could ask I would appreciate it!

Thanks Ramon
