Whole Lotta Hoopla
Last Monday, two friends and I went to Darling Harbour for the last day of the annual Hoopla Festival, which included street performers and acrobatics.
These guys who played movie themes and classic rock as they flew, spun and flipped were maybe my favorite.
But the breakdancers on stilts were awesome too. (The photos didn’t just come out as good.) That's two people doing some sort of crab-walk together.
These two women were incredibly strong and graceful. They would climb the rope without any safety net or harness, then entwine themselves in the rope and twist around.
My friend and I were inspired on the playground. But without the same finesse, we didn’t draw much of a crowd.
