Five More Minutes Spends Seven Minutes With an Amazing Balancing Act!

Written by Braiden Rex-Johnson on June 10, 2013

This seven-minute video entitled, “The Incredible Power of Concentration,” is truly “incredible” on so many levels.

That this woman performer–Miyoko Shida Rigolo–is so strong in her core, and patient enough to balance piece after piece of wood to create a gorgeous sculpture.

That a single feather is the foundation for the entire sculpture.

That she goes to all this trouble to construct the sculpture, then lets it all come down when she removes the feather.

I guarantee you will be captivated by this performance and premise, called Sanddornbalance. According to Miyoko, it was created by Mädir Eugster (Artist, Inventor, Director of Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque) in 1996 and was played only by himself until 2011.

Miyoko says she is a Japanese dancer and choreographer  living in France, but “she has also worked in some projects with Mädir Eugster and Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque since 1999.”

Enjoy!
