SPINTOP ON DRIFTWOOD
A big spinning top is set in motion by human leverage and moves magically and precariously across a gnarly piece of driftwood, until it is finally poised in a moment of wonderful equilibrium. This extraordinary act is an excerpt from BEAUTIFUL TURNS (2008) and is currently being performed exclusively on the world tour of the Broadway production EMPIRE by Spiegelworld. The act was developed by Maedir Rigolo, who performed it for the first four years, before passing it on to Memet Bilgin. Memet is currently performing the spectacle in Australia.
