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

Oooh boy! I was just about to ask when we could expect a new video of you guys! I'm gonna load it fully on my slow internet and then watch it ! Can't wait!!

Wow thanks!!!

That is some amazingly good information you gave me! Thanks!

I havn't made a show yet.. But I'm sure I can make a show where I can talk on such a cool enthousastic way to entertain them.. I found out that if I stand for an audiance and juggle with my diabolo's for 5 minutes.. They dont enjoy it as much as if I Talk with ith.. Unless I perform it on a way as the sharpes do..

So.. Then I first try to create a show myself! I can try to make 1 with some objects in it.. Or 1 where I talk true the show.. So then I could say like hey okay im gonna try something now.. It should go like this that.. And its hard and bla bla and if it works.. Please clap! Something in that way? Just say what I do.. And add some funny things in it.. Or make a show with a theme :)

Anyways.. When I've done that I'l ask this community how much I could ask for it..
And then I'll go try to search for someone to do it together with! And try to sell it to the things you said!

Thanks all!


I would recommend that you put up posters all over your town, maybe in your local newspaper and such.
I've had a couple of diabolo demonstrations at local kindergartens but you could try local places where the youth come to hang out. (In denmark theres quite a few institutions where kids come after school to hang out and such. In fact thats where I started diaboloing) At those places you could offer doing workshops even.

good luck.

Yea we have that here also and I'm already doing workshops over their. And they pay around 20 euros an hour.
But I'm looking for places to sell shows..

A diabolo light show
A diabolo fireshow
and a normal diabolo show..


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?

Hey its going to be on tv this saturday... Yea beacuse of the euro songefestival where wse Netherlands sended in again an horrible nr.. YOU SHOULDN'T SEND IN A DUTCH NR!@$#!

Back on topic..
The ifrst time I was their he forgot me so I had to come back. Now this time I was their again.. And I think he had forgotten me again.. Because the time on the timer was already out. But yet he still said at the end that their was still 3 more things to do before the last show was over. 1 this. 2 that and 3 we have ramon who annoys himself that every tv channel ends with music. He asked what I was going to do and what music I wanted. I said give me something hips/cools. And then nothing? So.. I diddn't knew what to do and I walked on the stage.. And their was still someone singing.. And I diddn't knew when to start.. So I just did my thing.. Started with a swing trow start.. Lift/pedal lift/mini gen/innfinite 360 then something went wrong. And I picked it up did 2 high and 1x vertax gen and a double vertax gen.. But when I started 2 high they did the lights out.... And well when I was done nothing happend further.. He diddn't said a thing to me. And paul wasn't even watching I belive.. So I just walked back to my seet and then he went back on stage sining his own songs..

So... I don't know if anything is comming on tv... We'll see..

Thanks Duncan, But the problem is that I have really bad internet here.. I'm sitting on a camping at a beach with a Dongel.. Wich is a usb thing with internet. And its not so fast.. So loading each of the page takes alot of time :(

I know that reading true all those 30 page is amazing because I can see all the problems each of you who can do 3 low now walked up against.. And the solutions.

I will try it when I have a night of good internet!
And I don't have a camera :(

Hi I'm going to bump this tread op for a quick question.. Withouth reading more then 30 pages hehe.

I can now finaly start 3 low.. Not as in that they go round but the start is ok now. Using a wrap start.

Now sometimes if i time the unwrap right ( not focusing on it yet ) then I can do 2 rounds. But I wonder what is the hand movement like? Can someone give me some kind of guideline on the hand movement? Because here I don't know and most of the time 2 of the diabolo's just collaps in the middle of the string.



I'm New / Re: Best brand and choice of Diabolo to start with?
« on: June 01, 2010, 05:40:46 PM »
Yea as sean said! Finesse and Circus don't show scratches the most. I have sundia's and their just as good as finesse or circus! But harder to obtain!! And they show scratches more. And another reason why you could choose sundia's over finesse or circus is how they look!

Check for them. The sundia's have an amazing look. Finesse and circus are just bright collours but the sundia's are also bright collors but also shining and you can look true them.

Sean also mentioned the weight.. If you got strong hands and are a big person then the normal diabolo's with normal weight are awesome. I am a small person with not much strenght and I do alot of 2 high.. That is why I bought super ultra light diabolo's :)

And oh one more thing on the finesses hehe. If you buy Finesse you can easily buy light kits, fire kits, other kind of kits. And a charger for the lights! Sundia or circus doesn't has that.

And if you think fingergrinds look awesome then buy weith axle diabolo's :)
