Michael Moschen combines the magic of light and movement to transcend object manipulation from novelty to a true art form. He blends the rich beauty of art, science, physics and mathematics in a show of fantastic feats and illusions. Michael has been critically acclaimed by such leading media as The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times who have called his work "genius," "exhilarating virtuoso entertainment" and "flawless purity."
Considered unequaled in the world of juggling, Mr. Moschen has taken his talents around the world with theaters, dance festivals and circuses, made international television appearances, and was commissioned by Cirque du Soleil to create and stage a new work for their permanent theatrical circus at the Treasure Island Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
