juggler – absent about 4 years. His juggling with biliard balls is common, but he introduced it. Spadoni and Conchas use cannon balls. “No one approaches Cinquevalli. His confidence is sublime.” He drops a billiard cue over the orchestra, catches it with two other cues and allows a cannon ball to accidentally slip towards the orchestra. In doing these things “he takes a chance on over-confidence, with a possible accidental result” He holds up a chair with his teeth while his assistant is sitting in it.
