Extending the limits of the yo-yo as performance art.
BLACK takes the simple yo-yo and makes it the instrument of exhilarating and genre-bending performance art. Twice World Yo-Yo Champion, his yo-yo artistry weaves elements of jazz dance, ballet, acrobatics, magic, ninja lore and Japanese traditional theater into an ever-expanding performance repertoire.
From bare stage to themed events with spectacular backdrops, his mesmerizing performances continually push the limits of his art. All eyes stayed glued on his yo-yos at all times, intrigued by the magic he will perform with them next. Connecting easily with individuals and large venues alike, he has gone from stage and TV in Japan to engaging a global audience, appearing as a speaker at TED and in the cast of Cirque du Soleil in the touring show KURIOS.
Besides the boundary-expanding entertainment of his performance art, BLACK has woven his skills and life story into motivational talks that make great presentations and events.
