I recently discovered this incredible performance of Sanddornbalance by Miyoko Shida of the Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque. After doing a little more digging I discovered Sanddornbalance has been around for sometime. It was created by performance artist Mädir Eugster back in 1996 as part of a play called Balance … forever turning. For many years Mädir was the only person to perform the act until he decided to pass on his knowledge to a small number of performers of which Miyoko is one of.
Here is a jaw dropping video of Sanddornbalance by Mädir Eugster which eliminates distractions and focuses on the performance.
