Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
During the weekend we had the DaiDonDen street performance festival in Sapporo. There were jugglers, comedians, dancers, acrobats, magicians, mimes, and many other types of performers. Many dance schools etc. had their students perform too.
Last year it was raining and most of the performances were canceled. This year the weather was great, though a bit too hot (33℃).

There was lots of hula dancing
I saw these unicycle dancing performers once before, and they were great back then too
