David Bowie’s “The Labyrinth” was the first time many of us were exposed to contact juggling.  In the movie, Bowie’s character Jareth the Goblin King appears to manipulate a clear acrylic ball. In reality, it was not Bowie but juggling legend Michael Moschen doing the manipulation.

We stumbled upon this classic behind-the-scenes video featuring a young Michael Moschen (check out that head of hair!) while researching the Fushigi controversy. These were truly the early days, before the term “contact juggling” was even coined. What you’re watching here is “crystal ball manipulation”.
