Default Awesome circus video channel.

I'm just making sure all of you know about this guy's YouTube channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/TarasPozdnyakov

He's apparently a director for circus performances. I first came across his channel several months ago and subscribed to it, though he hadn't done any recent uploads. However, it seems like he started his own performance company a few weeks ago and he's been putting up a lot of new content, and it's all real amazing stuff. Not only are the skills crazy, but the presentation is simply phenomenal. Spend some time watching his videos - it won't be time wasted.

Just a few:

In my opinion, the worst of the latest videos. Then again, I'm not really a fan of contortionist acts. The whole spine bending thing is a bit unsettling, and after you've seen it once, all of the following moves (which rely on the spine bending) really aren't anything new.

The androgynous appearance of many contortionists is kind of whack too. I'm 80% sure this one is a chick, but 80% isn't really that much when it comes to these kind of things.
