Kwabana Lindsay Fiddles for His Supper

The Palace of Wonder is only one step removed from a circus to begin with, so it's appropriate that on the final evening they have a big-tent performer between live bands.

Kwabana Lindsay is more showman than elite performer (video footage at www.hyptyo.com). While his feats are impressive (I know I can't play the violin while walking the tightrope), he milks the crowd with faked near-misses and fumbles, leading up to a flawless execution that leaves the crowd happy and relieved – a few girls swore he was gonna fall. Not a chance. It didn't matter that a sprained ankle seemed like the worst-case-scenario (he was only a few meters off the ground, after all), we all bought into it because hey, isn't it more fun that way?
