Did anybody mentally insert a "SPROING!" every time they hit the trampoline?

This performance was about a year ago, in October 2017, but still cool to see on video.  Great choice of setting.  For those who don't know, the Pantheon is a semi-secular temple to the heroes (and legends) of French history, notably from the French Revolution.  So they're doing this ultramodern interpretation of "revolutions" in front of some of the world's most famous sculptural depictions of revolution.  Also, their rotating platform sits on the spot normally occupied by Foucault's Pendulum, so their art piece about the world turning is sitting on top of an early scientific demonstration of the fact that the world turns.

Holy cow, that is mesmerizing and impressive. Well done.

Speakers here were playing "Ratatat" by Neckbrace ... which I'd never heard before, but had some Daft Punk style repetition, and worked really well with the animation. Crazy.

The Cirque du Soliel Volta show had a segment kinda like this with the trampoline and a structure to ''fall" off and and on. It was my favorite part of the sure.

Oh, and one more detail - the artist's name is "Bourgeois".  That's  a term with rather complicated meanings in French, but suffice it to say the word has associations to both the French Revolution and the various Marxist revolutions.

My cousin did a few of those shows.  She used to be on the world circuit, but decided her ph.D in psychology was more important, for some reason...

My mind was already blown, this additional info may just explode it.
Very cool.

It reminded me of one of the old Ringling Acts from a couple years ago-a whole troupe of trampoline artists.

Ah, Ringling. RIP.

You would have to replace the trampoline with a cement floor painted with a bulls-eye to pull that off.

Meh. The old AWA used to do this, called it an MC Escher Death Match, Mad Dog Vachon vs. Da Crusher.

Maybe you're not supposed to watch it sober, but I thought the "Blue Man Group" show was crap. I almost walked out.

Thank you.

But I would really like to know why I can't play twit videos. Does anybody know? I've tried googling but no clear answers.

I believe Ratatat is the artist(s). They're awesome. Fave songs include Cream on Chrome, Wildcat, Lexx, and Seventeen Years.

"So, what do you do?"

"I'm one of those guys who jumps on tramps to dunk basketballs at NBA games. In my freetime I like to dress up and paint myself gray."

"Why?"

"Because I am conflicted."

"About what?"

"Dunking on you, or under you."

"Oh..."
