I saw his show a few years ago. It's really cool live too. He recently performed at the Cirque Du Demain, but in the non-TV broadcast show.

I'm used to seeing juggling balls bouncing, balancing etc but floating is not something I've seen before. I'd be interested to see more!

Yeah. I would love to see more of the act. Looks great.

it is really cool! have seen it twice now, definitely one of my favorite performers already!

Do you know if there is a bit more of it available online somewhere?

That teaser is working very well (I really want to see the show), but my chances of ever being able to see it live are pretty much nil at this point....

I don't believe so, but there are trailers of his other creations, in particular his recent one man show Deluge is worth checking out

I took some photos of his act, and if you look at the high resolution versions you can see some of how some of it works: http://www.lukeburrage.com/photography/Brianza-2011/Brianza-2011-by-Luke-Burrage-174.jpg for example

You know, editing forum posts would be super, super, super handy.

Dammit, Orin, why oh why won't you give us a Preview button?! ^_^

lukeburrage - - Parent

All other forum software I use has either live previews, edit buttons, or both.

If a webmaster edited my post, I hope they realized my mistake was that an image showed at all. It's a full resolution jpg which is way too much bandwidth for nice mobile browsing. It should be a link to the image, not an image displayed.

"Embed Images" is a per-user Edge setting (Me > Edit Settings) for image links. Perhaps some kind of < noembed > tag would be useful, though. Hmm.

I wonder what happens with words hyperlinked to image files.

Right, that didn't help. Oh well... To Meta!

So, Helium and strings are the tools for the 'weightlessness' - is that correct or is there more to it? I'd love to see more, really interesting idea and such an amazing effect. Does it look more 'obvious' when you see it live?

Daniel Simu - - Parent

It is all super obvious to me, there is not a single technique in there which I couldn't describe right now. However I was watching this show with a bunch of circus students, and multiple told me they were mesmerized and confused! He does present it terribly well...

lukeburrage - - Parent

When I was watching it live, it wasn't always clear to begin with which ball was which (normal ball, helium filled ball, helium ball with thread) until he got into that section of the routine. But then, as you say, it didn't seem particularly confusing, just presented so well that nobody was quite sure what would happen next.

From the audience it wasn't possible to see the thread, or not from any distance. It was only when I looked at my photos later that I could see the exact shape of the thread loop and how he would be slipping it around different fingers and such.

Thanks Luke, that reminds me a quick correction: I saw the act twice. The first time round, most effects surprised me, especially because there is no visual difference between the balls! When I saw it again a year later, I knew what to watch for and only THEN it was easy to follow :)
