Videos / Diahole -promotional video
« on: July 26, 2021, 11:38:55 PM »

Diahole is a hybrid Ring and diabolo stick prop. Concept invented by RK62. Design made by RK62 and myself. Ten years of prototyping and material testing later and behold, the Diahole™.

Diahole™ is now ready for orders. On this stage We only sell the DIY-version. We send the hole and instructions how to attach rest of the pieces. This is is because, even We have put lot of work in to this and to find the best solution for the prop to work, lot of people have wished for opportunity to change in similar string they normally use. So  We decided that's okay. So The first 50 pieces are sent out as limited edition DIY-kits with instructions and major parts of the Diahole for 80 € / piece.

In October We'll release the  brown Diahole Dianus edition with all needed parts attached + some bonus dianus stuff. This edition will be bit more expensive but it's limited series of 24 Diaholes, so put in pre-orders now or these will be gone forever.

[MOD EDIT: Original post]

Hello all,

I talked with Wis and he tries to send me all the previous collaboration 2017 clips he has saved, this means  maybe 25% or 50% of clips and I promised to make the edit for year 2017 collaboration video. You probably  remember the collaboration video I edited 2014. So don't get too hyped. :D But what I can guarantee is that there will be collaboration video 2017.

So just to make this happen, and you have sent clips for this collaboration please re-send them to me before end of August and you'll get the collaboration video in September and We can launch new collaboration poll  for year 2018.

Deadline to send videos August 26th.2018

Please send your videos to (I would prefer wetransfer)

FDC-festival isnow organized for the 13th time at Eräjärvi.
FDC- festival has been the only diabolo-festival in Europe.
FDC is also one of the most significant Diabolo events in the world. At FDC2015 we had participants from 10 different countries and from four different continents.

Professional diabolo jugglers and amateur diabolo jugglers from all over the world travel to this festival to juggle diabolo, exchange tricks and have fun together.

FDC2018 will take place at a great venue in Eräjärvi, Finland, like it always has. There are two main buildings + sauna by the lake surrounded by a spacious site that includes a campsite and a festival village. The site is conveniently located right in the middle of Eräjärvi village, that has one shop and a pub. Train station at Orivesi is at approximately half an car ride from Eräjärvi. This is the place we’ll be happy to pick you up to the festival. Good travel options are to fly to Helsinki, and take a bus from Helsinki airport to Tampere. To top it all off, there is a sauna by a lake within walking distance of the festival site!

FDC is great festival for everyone! The festival program includes activities for diabolo jugglers and circus enthusiasts of all ages and all levels. There are beginners’ workshops as well as special master classes at an advanced level. The program is filled with world-class shows and performances. Even for non-jugglers there is plenty to do, and by the end of the convention they may have become diabolo jugglers too! There is even a sport event as a part of the festival called Diabolothon. Which has been orginized from 2007 as a part of FDC-festival.

See you all at Eräjärvi!

Project NMN asks everybody to join us to go RJC2018. From Helsinki you can take a ferry to St.Petersburgh and stay there for 3 nights without visa. I bet You all want to do this. Visit St.Petersburgh and see [heresy] on one weekend trip. We just made it possible! Join us and hey ho let's go!

📌Juggling theater at the convention

🎉This year, with the support of Finnish consulate, we’re bringing to Saint-Petersburg a Finnish troupe. Last fall, they amazed us so much that this year we invited them with a full-size theatrical play.

🎭NMN Project (Fin) is a Finnish circus company established in 1986. It specializes in performing arts. NMN Project artists believe in trespassing borders , constant deepening of knowledge and love.

“Heresy” is their new show directed by Samuli Männistö, who is a juggler and a master of visual arts. He is among the most active promoters of circus arts in Finland. Samuli vigorously promotes contemporary Finnish circus and participates in building important entities such as the Information center for Finnish Circus.

The name of the show means researching any belief or theory that diverges from the mainstream. It is a study of humility, essense and sanctity, inspired by the art. The show is about religion and belief that relate to the Nature and the Universe. It mixes physical theatre and juggling, live music and laugh.

The show will be performed as a part of Gala show, on the last day of the convention.
