1A and AP World Champion Tomonari “BLACK” Ishiguro finally had his dream come true as he performed as one of the acts at Cirque du Soleil’s travelling show Kurios on August 12th.
BLACK left his highly successful yo-yo competition career to focus on performing several years ago, managing to impress the Cirque during an audition in 2009. More recently, BLACK gave a very inspirational TED talk, and even performed with the Cirque at a closed event.
Now his act is part of Kurios and it’s really exciting to see yoyoing get this much visibility with the world’s most prestigious troupe!
Kurios will be in Quebec until later this month, and will tour through Toronto, San Francisco, and Seattle this year! Be sure to check it out!
