The diabolo, or Chinese yo-yo, is a children's game first introduced into
the realm of the arts in Cirque du Soleil's Quidam. This entrancing act features
four young Chinese performers. Holding two sticks linked by a string, they slide,
juggle and toss a musical wooden spool while performing flips in the air.
Demonstrating increasingly difficult maneuvers, the artists attempt to outdo
each other in dexterity and ingenuity.
