Walking Globe trick ideas requested
Most of you will remember that I asked for ideas for tricks on the walking globe a while ago. For those people who watched BYJOTY this year you will have seen some of where that has led. Bearing this list of tricks that I will post below in mind, what other ideas can people suggest? You will gain my thanks for any usable ideas which aren't just perform (Other prop) on walking globe.
Tricks in show:
Leap mount of walking globe (other mounts are available)
Jumping between two walking globes
Passing two hoops around the body in opposite directions
Skipping/Backwards Skipping/Crossed-Arms skipping on globe
Double skip dismount
Mounting a spinning globe and then staying on it by a) moving feet and b) not moving feet
Walking on two globes at one time
Performing a 1up 180 whilst on two globes
Under the leg juggle whilst on two globes
Turning 4 ball half shower whilst on globe
5 ball multiplex followed by 5 ball flash on two globes.
Tricks not in show but done elsewhere
Frog balance on globe
skipping whilst on 2 globes
jumping onto 2 spinning globes
no handed standing to sitting to standing
collecting 3 ball from floor whilst sitting (standing tried and not close)
one footed stand on globe (very difficult)
2 person 1 globe facing same way, facing each other and with one person turning
3 person 1 globe
4 person 1 globe (so far only for a few seconds)
moving globe by jumping
lying flat on globe
forward roll over globe
probably a bunch more I've forgotten
I'd like to see someone do a pommel horse circle on a walking globe
Is it maybe possible to use it like a trampoline and to slightly jump and fall into sit-jump back to stance?
Ouch. I think you're confusing walking globes with those Swiss inflatable aerobic balls... You'll find that walking globes are incredibly hard and sturdy, one would not want to fall with their buttocks on those...
Handstand with each hand on a different walking globe, as seen at Manchester BJC (photo on page 3 of The Catch magazine)
From the hand positions this looks faked, as in the globes would roll away if they weren't stuck in a hole. However handstand on a walking should be possible (and eventually two globes) just possibly not by Peter.
Really nice little act. I enjoyed that and whilst I think I've seen virtually all the walking globe skills in other acts it's good to see them all put together well.
