Look at this awesomeness we stumbled across at Kennedy Plaza while taking a leisurely stroll on the Atlantic City boardwalk earlier today.

 

These are the Diabolos, and they are part of the Cirque Du Soleil show Dralion that premieres at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall tomorrow. The diabolo (aka Chinese yo yo) is a children’s game where each participant “maneuvers” (juggles, tosses, crazy throws, etc.) a wooden spool on a string between two handheld sticks. That made perfect sense, right?

This picture can probably explain it better.

Workin' them sticks.

And it’s also like… a contest because each performer tries to totally beast one another.

Anyway, the Diabolos are just a small number of the 50 plus International cast members that make up Dralion. Other popular acts include Kala (the cross wheel), Hibana (the Aerial Hoop) and single handbalancing. Together, they send the message that man and nature are one.

Check out these acts along with the Diabolos at Cirque Du Soleil’s Dralion at Boardwalk Hall August 29th through September 2nd. Get your tickets here.
