Qian Brothers Performance Video

The Qian Brothers are famous for doing extremely difficult technical juggling, both in practise and in performance. Until now, the only videos I had seen where of very poor quality. One was of the brothers passing 18 rings (6 each) and the other was of Jian Wan Qian flashing 8 badminton rackets. These videos can be found on Luke Burrage’s old site.

Recently, however, I stumbled across anther video of the Qian brothers on YouTube. It’s much better quality, and gives you a good feel for how technically demanding their act was. There are very, very few people who are capable of performing some of the tricks they did. 9-10 ring pulldowns, 7 badminton rackets—and they make it look easy.
