About the artist: Christian Kloc learned to juggle at age six after seeing the Flying Karamazov Brothers perform. What started as a basic trick became an obsession. Christian grew up attending juggling festivals across the country and performing at local events. After 25 years, he is still surprised and amazed by the power of that ‘basic trick’ to change lives and cause spontaneous outbursts of fun in the world.
