KA Pillars

I had no idea this was even an act in KA until now. So I was just interested as to where it came in during the show, what happened during it and why/when it was removed? Also there's pretty much no footage of it being performed, probably why it skipped over me all these years.

Pillars came after the Blizzard and before The Flight.

It was a very dangerous act, they were about 22 inches in diameter and 15 feet tall. Performers were constantly getting injured during this sequence.

Btw Richasi, you might want to change your website on the Totem page from Devil Sticks to Diabolo.

It's crazy to think that that was actually an act. People jumped from one of those to another?! Talk about precision.

Wasn't there a full online video of Ka that had the pillars act in it?

It was also a dangerous act for the technicians in the show. Those pillars were enormously heavy and moving them around in the dark could have cost a few fingers or toes.

The video is still around.

If you're talking about the ARTE TV recording, the act was already out by then.

He/she is talking about a bootleg (I'm assuming).

Ah, I see. I sure haven't seen one, but tell me if you come across a video of the pillars!

Out of curiosity, does anyone know what year pillars was taken out?
