Here are some clips of a few hoop rollers from a whiles ago. These hoopers are some of the most impressive I’ve ever seen. All these clips have been taken from the amazing website http://juggling.tv which is well worth a visit. Many of the videos seem to have been found by http://juggler.com.
The names are probably right but might not be. The dates are not necessarily when the clip is from but more a rough guide to when the performers were at their peak (again probably). This information is partly taken from “Virtuosos of Juggling” by Karl-Heinz Ziethen.
My sister Revolva came and visited Brizzle a little while ago to teach some workshops. We had a spare few hours so we made this. It covers many classic hoop sites in Bristol and includes pasties, telephone boxes and cider. What more could you want, eh?
This subject is long enough to write a book on! In fact I’ve already done that and don’t want to do it again. So I’ll keep it short and sweet so you can understand the basics. Here are a few of the main ways you can sell yourself as a professional hoop performer.
A classic and effective way to sell your act. Most freelance performers don’t have one agent who handles all their bookings but rather they work with a variety of different agents on different events. Good agents are worth their weight in glow hoops, sadly this level of value means they are hard get on board. Almost all agents will have a barrage of performers trying to get work out of them and this means the job of getting agents to sell your act is a tricky one.
Sorry. I’m sorry for posting another video shameless promoting myself. I’m sorry for all the silly dance moves. And most of all I’m sorry for the union jack onesie. Watch this at your own peril.
The lovely Kenna Hoops doing some really rather wonderful single and double hoop shennaigary while drinking rum and ginger ale. First video from her in ages so well worth a watch.
Here’s a little bit of shameless self promotion. This is my new fire show promo. It has a little bit of fire hooping in it and some other random stuff including a bicycle on fire and on my face while I spin a flaming hoop cube around my body.
