The magic of light and movement has never before been combined as it is in the world of Michael Moschen. Considered unequaled in the world of juggling, Michael has transcended object manipulation from a novelty to an art form. The undisputed inventor of contact juggling, Moschen uses his body and his Olympian skill to make objects float. Unencumbered by gravity, seemingly defying the laws of physics. The only variety artist ever to receive a MacArthur Genius Grant, Michael Moschen is the kind of performer that comes around once in a lifetime.
In the Jim Henson film Labyrinth, Mr. Moschen (as David Bowie’s arms) creates one of the most memorable scenes in film history, where crystal balls dance across his hands. A visual so remarkable most viewers thought it was a complicated special effect. It is this remarkable artistry that Michael brings to his one-man show. A show so captivating, so universal, that no matter age nor ethnicity, audiences the world over will never forget the illusion-like juggling of Michael Moschen.
