Juggling in Movies

Labyrinth (1986)

[George Lucas/Jim Henson film; David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly]

Young Sarah is left home alone by her parents and has to babysit her little brother Toby. While telling him a story to make him sleep, Sarah inadvertently conjures from a fantasy world the King of Goblins, who steals the child and brings him to his castle in the middle of a labyrinth. Sarah has to rescue him before midnight, or the baby will became a goblin.

Michael Moschen performed contact juggling for David Bowie by sticking his arms through Bowie's costume and watching on a video monitor. Moschen was credited as a choreographer. The first contact juggling scene occurs 13 minutes into the film. The second scene is about an hour later.
