My name is Luca Pferdmenges, I'm a 17-year-old performer from Germany. I currently hold 10 world records and won 6 gold medals.
I believe that with practice, anything is possible!
Juggling is awesome because it can always be better. You can always learn a new trick, be creative or “simply” add an object. – It never ends. During the past years, I found ways to highlight the visual features of the sport (yes, juggling is a sport!), to design extraordinary stage shows, for example with programmable hightech equipment.
How everything started
Luca Pferdmenges was born on the 24th of August 2001 in Rheydt, Germany. He first got in touch with juggling when a school circus came to his primary school. Back then, he was 10 years old. He participated in a circus project for a week and learned the basics of juggling. At the end of the week the whole school performed a show to demonstrate what the children had learned. – Luca juggled three balls on stage for the first time!
He knew that he wanted to keep juggling as it was so much fun for him. During the next two years Luca enjoyed tricking with three and four balls but never got to experience the unlimited possibilities of juggling.
It wasn't until three years later, in 2014, when he finally went to his first juggling convention and saw Stefan Brancel practicing 7 clubs. He had never seen somebody that good before. This moment significantly changed his attitude towards juggling.
One year later, Luca set his first official Guinness World Records.
Since then, he has been pushing the limits of juggling.
In 2016, Luca performed in the German Tv show "Superkids" in which young talented kids from all around the world show their extraordinary skills. More than 1.5 million people watched his juggling tricks on TV.
In the show he juggled with Michelle Hunziker, Felix Neureuther, Wayne Carpendale, as well as many talented kids from all over place. Luca impressed the jury and reached the final episode.
He then filmed two videos together with Julia Beautx who is a German beauty-YouTuber with more than a million subscribers on YouTube.
