High Above the Spectators

High Above the Spectators
I've seen buskers like this one at various events.

Essentially a number of sturdy volunteers are asked to put the blue straps around their waists to keep te pole and the high seat in balance, while the busker climbs up the pole to reach the top to begin the juggling acts.

The mere shifting of the weight from one leg to another by just ONE volunteer can cause the pole to swing slightly. At one point this did happen, the busker yelled and almost flew off the tiny seat.
