My friend shared a video of an incredible performance of Sanddornbalance by Miyoko Shida Rigolo on Facebook this afternoon. The performance begins with her balancing a single white feather on her finger, then placing it atop a stripped palm rib, which is then placed upon another and so forth. It's deceptively simple and utterly awe-inspiring to watch as she flawlessly balances each and every element of the construct on the next. I think I must have held my breath through almost half of the video when I watched it the first time!
I especially love the finale because it shows how delicate the balance of the palm fronds and feather really is.
