Moon: The Jesters
Two beautifully costumed harlequins present mesmeric crystal ball manipulation as interactive walkabout characters.
Internationally recognised contact juggling specialists Jago Parfitt and Dimitri Ogden (also of ‘FlameOz’, ‘Halo’ & ‘Calvos’) bring their unique talents to bear on these delightfully elegant venetian characters who manipulate crystal balls that glide, float, dance and levitate surreally around their hands, arms and bodies.
For evening events, the Venetian Jesters additionally offer a meet&greet set as statuesque characters and an LED (Glow) juggling / spinning set to finish.
Fire juggling / spinning sets are also available on request.
New for 2013
The Jesters return with a re-write of their original venetian jesters themed stage show. This is a 7 minute visual high-energy variation of the popular Halo Glow Show by the same artists and also available through Contraband. The Jesters use props with super bright computer controlled LED lights to create fabulous patterns and textures in the air through their juggling and poi spinning. Client logos or messages can be set to appear in the show’s finale. See photos, info and video on the Halo Glow Show page.
The Jesters stage show can be combined with their walkabout crystal ball manipulation and meet and greet options for a full evenings entertainment.
Venetian Jester stilt walkers, fire eaters and hula hoopers as the female members of the Halo Glow Show troupe join Jago and Dimitri for more fabulous walkabout entertainment options and a full 4 person Venetian Jester themed Glow Show.
Standard Length of Performance:
The Jesters Perform 3 x 30 minutes.

”The Jesters were very professional, following a very light brief they were happy to simply get on with things, they moved to the required areas at the times set and gave a brilliant atmosphere on the event entrance and also on entrance into the gala dinner room. They were great to deal with. Please do thank them all for me, we were extremely happy with their performances and would definitely recommend them.”

“The event was a roaring success! Everything was flawless and considering how fiddly the production was, this made me and my client extremely happy. Jago, Grace & Dimitri were excellent. The performances they provided fitted in perfectly with the night, and guests really enjoyed watching them. They were a real pleasure to work with; very talented, accommodating, easy going and professional. Jago was a real gentleman…Thanks again for your help – I shall be in touch about another event soon! ”
