Artist Meast will be performing with French troupe, Manda Lights, at the Temple of Poi Expo

From his mastery of doubles contact, single staff contact and doubles spinning, as well as a flair for acrobatics, Meast is really a joy to watch and doesn’t seem to have a single weak point in his spinning. He started to play with a lot of different other tools such as contact ball, club swinging and manipulation, balls and anything that could help him getting better and better in his staff skills.

As a graphic designer, Meast pays a lot of attention to the object trajectory and the body movements involved to create the patterns. His first interest is focused on this “body/object” relation and its visual impact.
