Actually quite impressive, but not as impressive as I thought. I mean, don't get me wrong, it must be incredibly difficult to do all those bends and stuff while juggling. Like... INCREDIBLY difficult. But looking at it from a performance vs performer perspective, it's like the contortion act is an entirely separate act from the juggling act. In other worse, each piece individually is an act on its own (though the juggling act is probably less interesting).
Now, you may be thinking, "But won't it wobble and stuff in the air?" And it doesn't. It stays entirely in the plane of spin. There is a swivel attached to the handle and to the dreamcatcher itself, allowing for free rotation of the weight.
Each handle and tether is made of leather. The strings are made of hemp. The beads are made of whatever they look like they're made of. And the cloth is made out of... well... cloth. I don't know if it's cotton or polyester or whatever, but it IS made out of dreams. Because you've got to made dreamcatchers out of dreams. True story...
Anyway, these will be on sale at FLAME Festival. See our booth for more designs. We have a very limited supply since all of them were hand made.
Big thanks to Theresa for coming up with the idea and doing a massive amount of work on these. Also, thanks goes to Jessi for putting some of them together for us, too.
More pictures after the break.
