"The Rolla Bolla act by Geddy Pavlovich was by far the most nail biting. This highly dangerous act as part of the black segment, features seven independently moving cylinders stacked vertically, with Pavlovicius balancing not just on a board above the cylinders, but making a 360 degree turn. Watching this performance close-up allows the audience to see how close to the edges of one another each cylinder is, and how easy it could be for Pavlovich to fall off. This is one stellar moment that Painter’s stage set-up showcases to its true glory.."
"I was also holding my breath when I took this photo of Geddy Pavlovich doing his Rolla Bolla act, balancing on metal pipes. It is easily one of my favorite acts from the show. I got to pick up the pipes later backstage and they are just plain pipes, no tricks. Just sheer skill and balance.."
"The level of excitement magnifies as Rolla Bolla specialist Geddy Pavlovich takes on the stage with the concept of teetering on a basic balance board - a board balanced on a cylinder - to amazing heights. He puts another object under the first two and than another and then another until he is performing atop seven unstable levels of moving cylinders and teetering platforms.*gasp*."
"The other highlight would have to be by this guy, Geddy Pavlovich. SERIOUSLY BREATHTAKING you know. I was already quite amazed when he was doing the Rolla Bolla stunt like this & he eventually added more levels.... The way he balanced on it..."
