Richard Hartnell’s contact juggling performance showcases the art form’s ethereal fluidity. Currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, this particular sphere charmer shocks and amazes audiences on stages and streets, and in clubs and parlors between Seattle and San Francisco, Bourbon Street and Black Rock City.
Other performers have described Richard’s style of contact juggling as mystical, hypnotic, precocious, and inspiring. Originating in Bellingham, WA and influenced by the East Bay fire spinning community, Richard Hartnell claims an impressive repertoire of fluid manipulations and glass-smooth isolations.
His street resume includes destinations from Fisherman’s Wharf to Bourbon Street; Richard has also performed as part of the Dream Science Circus, Hellzapoppin, and the New Old Time Chautauqua. Now he can add Seattle’s Moisture Festival to his credits.
