Tomonari “BLACK” Ishiguro finally fulfilled his dream this month in Montreal, where he was able to perform with the Canadian troupe in a closed event!
BLACK went through an extensive training period after retiring from competition, sharpening his performance, athletic skills, and showmanship. He passed the Cirque’s audition in 2009, and was finally given the opportunity to perform. His inspiring TED talk earlier this year may have set things in motion!
While footage from this month’s event is not available, we at YoYoNews are hopeful BLACK shall soon join one of Cirque du Soleil’s mind-blowing shows!
Congratulations, and good luck, BLACK!
