The Pink Floyd Of Juggling

If there's a form of entertainment more resistant to updating than juggling, I don't know what it is. Sure, the ancestors of today's jugglers couldn't juggle modern objects like, say, chainsaws, but performers still use the same techniques and probably the same jokes. Which is why the title of one of the world's most famous jugglers' latest show, Mark Nizer's 3-D Juggling Show, is so intriguing. First of all, you'd think that calling a live performance 3-D would be redundant--but the lasers, fog and blacklight effects on Nizer's costume and juggled objects apparently make the show look even more three-dimensional than real life. But in case you're not stoned enough to be impressed by the combination of juggling with a laser show, he also juggles ping-pong balls with his mouth and creates music by bouncing balls off an electronic pad. Check him out 2:30 p.m. Sunday in the Hill Performance Hall of The Charles W. Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson. Tickets are $10 to $20. Call 972-744-4650 or visit eisemanncenter.com.
