Michael Moschen has always propped up the performance-art edge of the juggling subculture. To him, juggling is art. Consequently his performances are less show and more art class.

This was the case at his recent appearance at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. An article in the Wall Street Journal aptly portrays Moschen’s presentation as half lecture, half demonstration, and fully entertaining and inspiring.

Even though Moschen’s view of juggling can often be dismissed as a bit pretentious–he opened his performance at NYU saying, “Hello . . . I want to make new things.”–you can’t deny that his passion for art has led him to create some of the most innovative performances that have graced the juggling stage.
