The Anton Brothers arrived to entertain and astound fans at the Target Center during Saturday night’s blockbuster game between the Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

And that’s exactly what they accomplished! However, The Anton Brothers perform in a slightly different way than most - by simply using their feet!

Their act began slowly with a few gymnastics maneuvers on the Target Center court. That progressed into full-on acrobatics, and 360 flips of the body using only their feet.

The act of the evening was when one brother sat on the others feet and was somersaulted into the air consecutively. The crowd went crazy as they watched the seemingly complex act appear so simple for these performers from Argentina.

As youngsters, Max and Emanuel Anton practiced in the art of Icarian. The brothers are 6th generation circus performers known for their high-energy act of human foot juggling. Their act has been performed at circuses worldwide, including in Cirque Le Masque.
