Martin Mall’s passions are ideas inspired by gravity. As an award-winning professional performer who specializes in juggling, he has brought his shows to stages all around the world, from New York to Paris, from Greenland to China. Constantly looking for new ways to develop special moments and combine various art forms has led to collaborations with classical musicians, laser designers and other creative minds. He doesn’t just juggle objects but also himself and others in the air – he is an experienced skydiver with over 2,000 jumps, a longtime member in various “big way formation” teams and a participant in last year’s national world record of 214 jumpers. He combines his knowledge about juggling and skydiving, showing how being successful in these fields requires and teaches valuable lessons about teamwork and strategic thinking.
