    Tell us the Good Stuff!

    Two performers who inspired me

    I’d like to introduce two performers who work in Kanagawa, Japan.They are from England and America and can speak Japanese very well because they studied so hard to perform in Japan. They don’t have stable income so their life is hard and is difficult because they are still studying Japanese. Nevertheless they perform in Japan because they want to tell us what street performance is. They walk around and high bamboo stilts, do some magic and juggle with fire sticks. The most interesting part of performance is the bamboo stilts. While standing on the stilts the performer juggles apples. The day I saw them was cold and windy but their performance was amazing and made us excited. It is hard to be successful at both studying and performing in a foreign country but they are able to do it. I wondered how they stay motivated, maybe they are supported by their audience. There are a lot of people in their audience because anyone from adults to a children can enjoy the performance. All people concentrate on watching their performance and after it finishes the performers receive warm applause from the audience. This performance taught me that having a connection with others is important for performer because an audience can make a performer cheerful. That was a good experience for me.
