I suppose that therefore it's no surprise that when I saw this guy, I was dumbstruck. Not because I think he's actually levitating, obviously (despite the fact that, every time I tell someone about it here, they scoff and say "well you know he's not actually levitating right? Please". No shit!!!! Welcome to Italy). However I do think that he is probably the coolest street mime I have ever seen, and it took me ages to figure out how he does it.
Of course I knew that it had to do with his hand on the staff, because it is his only point of contact with anything that is actually on the ground.
Still, I think it's very clever and my favourite street mime so far.
What do you think? What's the coolest street mime you've ever seen?
