Videos / Nico Pires 2019 - Best Of Diabolo Tricks And Combos
« on: January 04, 2020, 11:41:03 AM »
Hi everyone!

Wow I haven't been posting here for ages, that feels good to be back haha!

2019 has been a very special year for me on many levels, sparkled by new encounters and inspirations. Back in January I aimed to create or complete 365 new tricks, combos, ideas, or existing sequences previously done by my fellow diabolo brothers. I am still counting, and probably I have reached a lower number (I'll let you know soon on another video), but here is a selection of around 50 of my favorite of the year:

I am thankful to still have the opportunity to travel both the world and imagination through my lovely diabolos :)

Wishing you all a very creative and dedicated 2020!

Hi everyone!

Ages since I posted something on the forum, so here is a very experimental session with some improvised dance moves and a few new tricks. I feel I want to mix both more and more.

Feel free to criticize as I still feel I need to improve a lot in my body expression!

Cheers to you all!

Hi everyone!

I just spent 10 days visiting some friends in New York City and got inspired to shoot a little new video there:

Some old school tricks and a few new ones, but more than the tricks, I hope you will enjoy the morning light and the view from that rooftop as much as I did :)!

All the best!

Videos / Diabolo & Classical Music - Concert "Diabolique" Nico Pires
« on: February 07, 2015, 10:04:58 AM »
Hi guys,

A few weeks ago, I was proposed to work on a piece for a concert with live orchestra.

The piece is "The Demon" from Paul Hindemith (german composer from early 20th century), and so the chief of the orchestra thought it could fit to call the concert "Diabolique" (diabolical), and wanted to add some diabolo to it!

I tried to create something in a mirror effect with the orchestra, that could allow me to play with the codes and rules of the classical music world, using all type of old instruments to create some stuff with my props.

The show was held on tuesday in my hometown of Châteauroux, that was a lot of fun!

I hope I will have the occasion to work on that show again as it still needs some adjustments.

Here's a short clip of it :

Hope you guys will enjoy some of the ideas !

Have a nice week end !

« on: January 17, 2015, 02:26:36 PM »
Hello everyone!

All the best to all of you for this new year 2015!

We are happy to officially let you know that the movie " Diabolo is a trip" is now available for Rent and Buy in HD on Vimeo on Demand!

Here is the link:

Subtitles are available in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish and downloadable here:

- Rent: 1 week-streaming period for 5 euros
- Buy: stream and download anytime for 10 euros

Please note that this is a shorter version than in the Planet Diabolo DVDs, so it could be watched more easily by all types of audiences. It's been quite painful to cut some sequences out of the long version, but we had to in order to spread diabolo to more persons.

We have also released there some extra features, including 20 minutes of uncut scenes and bloopers.

Feel free to share anywhere!

Thanks to all of you for the support!

Hi guys,

Marco (M4U for the old school diabolo lovers!) and I had a little diabolo session in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago when I visited him for a few days.

We came out with a few ideas, quite some drops but mostly had a lot of fun!

Here it is:

Hi guys!

We are happy to let you know that "Diabolo is a trip" will soon be available for rent AND download on Vimeo On Demand!

It will be a FULL HD shorter version of the DVD version (102 minutes).
Available Subtitles: Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

Date of release: Jan. 9th 2015!

For the occasion, here is an interview of Cirque du Soleil artist and juggling legend Viktor Kee, who was present during the screening of "Diabolo is a trip" we held during the EJC in Ireland this past summer.

Viktor kindly accepted to express his feelings about the movie between his performances of the "Legend Gala Show" (say hi to Mister Steve Mills, creator of the "Mills Mess", on the side!).

A very special moment for Alexis and I (who interviewed him) as you can imagine.

Also available on Vimeo and Juggling TV:

Enjoy and merry Christmas everyone!

Videos / Équilibre - A Juggling Experience by Nico Pires
« on: November 28, 2014, 03:26:06 PM »
Hi guys !

These past few months I have been working on a new diabolo act (I'll post a proper trailer of it later), and also learning a bit more of contact juggling.

I had the opportunity to access a great stage (Equinoxe) in my hometown of Châteauroux to shoot some promo of all this with the help of my friend and amazing cameraman Franck Remy ( /

Équilibre, which means "Balance" in French, is the result of this session.

The original song "Équilibre" is performed by Hocus Pocus feat. Oxmo Puccino. The lyrics are talking about the struggle to find balance in life, using some metaphors through juggling, acrobats and circus. It fits quite well the atmosphere I wanted to give.

I am very sorry for the non-french speaking people, I hope this won't affect your appreciation of the video too much.

So here are the YouTube and JTV links :):

I hope you will enjoy!



Videos / 3 TriX in ChatiX - Will & Nico
« on: September 15, 2014, 01:53:31 PM »
Hi guys!

About a year ago, Will stayed a few weeks in my hometown to give me a precious hand for the final moments of creation of The Planet Diabolo Project.

While he was here we recorded a few tricks for the collab 2013.

Those were pretty good memories so I felt like doing a short clip :).
