Funky club links

clubsAfter hooking my friend Jake West up with a new set of PX3 clubs through the store I run with the circus school, he asked me if I could make him a list of cool club videos “with all that f#@$ed up stuff the Europeans are doing now…”

So.. since Jake (or many of our readers) aren’t lucky enough to be going to a french juggling convention anytime soon; here is the next best thing, a few of the best club manipulation videos available on the internet:

Sander (video, video, video) Funky legos and wrist traps
Emiliano Alessi (video) Clubs and dance
Luke Wilson (video)
Elias Hedlund (video, video ) Nordic sequencing (large downloads)
K8 Malabares (video) superfunky club juggling
Addicted DVD (video) Full-length (60min) free juggling video full of club manipulation goodness, including tonnes of Sander.
Malte Steinmetz (video) – technical 3 club mixed with contact club sequences.

There you go.. enough stuff to keep you busy for the next couple years 😉

Manne Hanke

Manfred Hanke – Jongleur

We met Manne at the CJC in Rennes. Well, I didn’t, I met him a week later.

We think he rocks. With the way that he is combining juggling and breakdance, this guy is definitely one to watch.

Marcel Marceau (1923-2007)

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

MarceauFamous mime Marcel Marceau died yesterday at age 84. :(

From CNN:

Marceau died Saturday in Paris, French media reported.

Wearing white face paint, soft shoes and a battered hat topped with a red flower, Marceau, notably through his famed personnage Bip, played the entire range of human emotions onstage for more than 50 years, never uttering a word. Offstage, however, he was famously chatty. “Never get a mime talking. He won’t stop,” he once said.

A French Jew, Marceau survived the Holocaust — and also worked with the French Resistance to protect Jewish children.

His biggest inspiration was Charlie Chaplin. Marceau, in turn, inspired countless young performers — Michael Jackson borrowed his famous “moonwalk” from a Marceau sketch, “Walking Against the Wind.”
