Hanging in the balance.....!


There was a gasp as the 700 strong audience in the spiegeltent breathed in as one, for the next what seemed like an hour but in reality was about fifteen minutes all eyes were glued to the spectacle before us. Beginning by balancing a feather on the end of a branch and continually adding to it until it almost took on the shape of a giant ribcage reaching out over the front rows..finally resting the whole structure on a centre piece (you can see the finale here) the 'maestro of concentration' stepped back, smiled, went up on his toes and blew the feather off causing the whole erection to collapse :) Oh and btw I made a mistake yesterday, I read that the stage where all this awesomeness occurs is actually two meters round not three, incroyable oui! Can it be Wednesday already..is it possible my kitchen is still in bits..yes, yes it is possible :)) take care.....

  7. I was going to say that it looked like our Absinthe, in a tent in front of Caesar's Palace, but that web site is titled Spiegelworld so it seems the shows are related. Waiting for it to cool down a bit before going, but it looks like fun.
