Pois and kiwidos in the Jonglierparadies

The pois are ideal as an element of the art of movement. The poi consists of a ball or weight that is swung at the end of a string. With a poi in each hand, it takes some coordination to keep the cords from getting tangled. The artful swinging using centrifugal force is not easy, but it promotes coordination, especially in children.

 

The origin of the pois

The pois originated in New Zealand. However, little is known. Maori women were said to have swung XNUMX branches tied with flax at the ends. By igniting the ends, a special image was created in the air at dusk or at night. The pois were used to maintain mobility in the hands and in men to improve their coordination and strength.

 

Pois with and without fire

The swinging of the pois looks particularly fascinating in the dark when working with light pois or fire pois. In the dark, the pois draw correct light patterns in the air. Captured with a good camera, this can create works of art that look absolutely incredible and very beautiful. You can find some impressions on the website of juggling.tv
