Mädir Eugster’s incredible feather balancing performance!

Tobias Hutzler Balance
This is one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen, I was holding my breath the entire time! W-O-W.

Artist Mädir Eugster creates an enormous sculpture all balancing on a single feather. I was convinced this had to be fake until I read that Eugster performs with the Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque and found an incredible 15-min performance on Youtube.

Watch both clips below!

  • One of the performers in the Cirque show Amaluna did this. It was totally hypnotizing and maybe the best part of the show.

  • This is an incredibly fascinating performance. I found myself having trouble looking away.

  • Orangugu

    I saw such performance in Amaluna (Cirque du Solei show) and totally agree – the most spectacular performance I’ve ever seen. Full of tense and even scare that one wrong movement can destroy this construction.

  • Steven

    Yup, this was absolutely captivating. I love the shots underneath his arm movements

  • The video is captivating as a performance art clip. The feather-balancing act requires a good deal of concentration and discipline.

  • PPP

    Sorry, was the enourmous sculpture balancing on a single feather or was a single feather balancing on the structure?

    • Nataline

      I believe the weight of the feather kept the branches in balance, hence when the feather was lifted the branches fell, (just my view)

  • It’s… amazing. I have no words to describe what I feeling and what I think about it.
