Stunning 3D juggling performance by Mark Nizer to be staged in December
**************************************************

     Mark Nizer, a US-based winner of international juggling championships, will return to Hong Kong in December with his latest 3D production, "Mark Nizer 3D - A New Dimension in Entertainment", merging traditional juggling with the technology and challenges of 3D.

     The highlight acts will include Nizer playing a symphony with bouncing balls and creating a web of lights and sound using tubes. There will also be laser spinning and dancing in the dark. Audiences will be able to witness a brand new experience in juggling performance by putting on 3D glasses.

     Mark Nizer was awarded as Collegiate Entertainer of the Year and Comedy Entertainer of the Year in 1998. He has performed at thousands of venues around the world, including the Kennedy Center and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where he performed three times, and has made frequent appearances on television in the US. Nizer's performances combine original comedy, world-class juggling, physical movement, music and technology. He is always working on new ideas and tricks for his show.
