Eike von Stuckenbrok

Every now and again someone comes along with such a mixture of talent, good looks, originality and sheer flare that you can do nothing but hope your jaw doesn't hit anything too hard when it lands on the ground.

Eike von Stuckenbrok is exactly that kind of phenonemon: part gymnast, part acrobat, part contemporary dancer, he calls himself an 'equilibrist'. What he does is astonishing and it really doesn't hurt that he likes to do it without many clothes on and in some very homoerotic atmospheres. Perhaps the most surreal moment he's brought me so far is his appearance on The Paul O'Grady Show where he was watched doing his thing, writhing around a 10ft statue of a shirtless man (normally the figure in this routine is naked) whilst fellow guest Dame Edna Everage looked on - marvellous. Hit the first Youtube link below for sheer jaw-dropping brilliance and then explore on your own but don't send me the dry-cleaning bills for the drool on your carpet.

Another LJ friend posted the bathtub routine YouTube clip and I was absolutely mesmerized. The sheer strength that young man has in his frame! I can't fathom how you can ever possibly work up to that, much less choreograph such works and then perform them so often. Thank you for sharing! Would have been fun to see him writhe all over the male upright prop/statue had it not had its trousers on. Thanks for sharing!!
