The Thrill of Balance

The man who performs in these short videos is Maedir Eugster, an awe-inspiring performance artist of the Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque, which he co-founded and has co-directed with his wife, Lena Roth, since 1978. Eugster was trained at the Paris Ecole Nationale du Cirque, Ecole de Mîme Etienne Decroux, and the Ecole de Mîme Jaques Lecoq. His unbelievable performances are as equally, if not more, thrilling and powerful as the trapeze artists and tightrope walkers of old.
