Portrait of an Artist as a Yo-yo Man
An autobiographical acrobatic comedy, written and performed by David Harris, and featuring Sam Mistry.
"Dynamically delightful" - StarTribune
"The stunts are amazing, but what makes this show a must-see is the storytelling." - Twin Cities Daily Planet
At the age of 14, David Harris knew exactly what he wanted to be, a professional yo-yo player. This dream led to a 20-year pursuit of odd hobbies; seemingly impossible stunts with folding chairs, shopping bag dancing, juggling feats, and inspired paddleball moves.

Along this unexpected, hilarious, and often embarrassing journey, David finds amazing yo-yo masters, paddleball kings, and wedding rings. Also featured in the show is drummer Sam Mistry, a 16 year old student at the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists.
As part of the show, David will have on display his extensive collection of antique yo-yos; rare Duncan classics from the 50s, silver-plated designer yo-yos, Tom Kuhn prototypes, and yo-yos autographed by awesome people you've never heard of!
