The promo for Full Moon Performers/Beard Juggling Ltd’s ”In Isolation” is now available through the Ministry and on Jagos Fullmoon site: (hint: on fullmoon you’ll find that the download the wmv or mov, are higher quality than their inbrowser version):
The release date for the video is the 9th of July; available at juggling shops worldwide and via www.beard.co.uk, but for now, enjoy this sneak peek.
Ryan sneeked out a quick video of one of our thursday night workshops a couple of weeks ago. Somehow it never got mentioned on this Blog.
There’s no Workshop next thursday, Ryan, Drew and Jeanine (and Dawn, Ed and a whole load of others) will all be at Play festival. Theres even a rumour that we’re going to perform and teach manipulation workshops. As far as I know Play is the worlds most brilliant, and most chilled manipulation festival with a lot of music and live bands too.
If you can get there, do.
And yes, it really is a manipulation festival, not a juggling festival. Play rocks.
Todays treat is a Promo for “Traces” by the company “les 7 doigts de la main”. The show features 5 cool acrobats with a cool street style and some incredible skills.
On tour, its in germany and france later this year, but sadly it doesn’t look like UK is on their agenda. 🙁

It is the year 2006 and Human Contact Jugglers have now been rendered obsolete – Replaced by “Markrokosmos” a truely fantastic 3m by 3 by by 2.5m kinetic sculpture manipulating 79 glass balls at a time.
Poke around the site and you will find lots of short video clips:
Click “about Markrokosmos” and “preferred location” and all it’s sub-menu’s
Genius, I love it.
The clips are extracts from a DVD which is also available: “Kinetic,” a film by J.W. van Reijen on a selection of Mark Bischof’s kinetic work. I have it, and I think it’s fab, recommended viewing for anyone who likes to see balls rolling!
Details of Mark and the DVD
Fake Finger Football Fun.
OK, so it’s a viral Advert for Hewlett Packard.

This is an advert, but I like it, so I’m posting it anyway.
