Apparently, juggling is big business. The Wall Street Journal does a write-up of Michael Moschen’s recent show at NYU’s Skirball Center Saturday April 17th, 2010.

Yes, Michael Moschen. The godfather of modern contact juggling. One of two jugglers ever to win the MacArthur Genius Award (high five to whoever can name the other). The same guy who contact juggled for David Bowie in The Labyrinth. Him.

It’s not every day that a juggler of this caliber passes through our lower Manhattan neighborhood. Michael blew the audience (including a few of us in attendance) away with his silicone ball triangle routine. Take a peek below at the genius.

    It was a good show, for sure, but I’d seen video of him doing most of it already! Also, I find it funny how much of a godfather of CJ he is, considering he doesn’t want anybody else doing it. Still, truly an experience to be able to see him live.

    Was the other juggler to win the award Bill Irwin? I haven’t seen him juggle, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

    Congratulations, Ashley, for knowing Bill Irwin won the other award. We salute you.

    A great lecture demonstration on manipulation, creativity and creating. Michael is wonderful and a nice guy.
