Solto Esengulov twists, balances, and morphs his body into unbelievable ways that will have you questioning whether his anatomy is really human.
Originally from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, Esengulov is now practicing his dance moves in Los Angeles, California. His moves include balancing on the top of his head, bulging out his shoulder blades, and displacing his abdomen. Esengulov himself describes his unique style as a combination of Bruce Lee moves with the precise actions of a robot.
Combining more than contortionism with dance, Esengulov’s signature move is to grab his windpipe and shift it from one side of his throat to the other. Adding to the awe-inducing moves, he likes to include sound effects into the music tracks he performs to in order to emphasize his body’s unusual movements.
