Michael Karas writes on rec.juggling:

It is really hard not to get incredibly gushy about this video so I’ll try my best…

Anyway…I’m no juggling historian but it is to my best knowledge that the last time an American audience was able to see this routine live was in 1997 at the European Showcase of the Pittsburgh IJA. Correct me if I’m wrong. I didn’t start juggling until 2001.

Anyway, the routine is called “Mobile” and is (I think) the signature piece of Jorg Muller (add umlauts where necessary), a German juggler who isn’t discussed often here on rec.juggling.

In my opinion, this is one of the finest juggling pieces of our time, in many ways on par with or greater than much of Moschen’s work.

One of the greatest Christmas presents I received today was finding that a routine I had only heard about was finally able to be seen (albeit not live) on YouTube. I love juggling in all its forms. But to me, a piece like this transcends juggling and take it to a higher plane – a plane only vaguely referenced by Charlie Dancey, where the juggling begins to create
a three dimensional “life” of its own – an almost conversation between objects and body.

Thanks, Jorg, for sharing.

Tokyo Portraits – Okotanpe

Friday, December 26th, 2008

A very well edited clip of Okotanpe, whose performance at the Japanese CJ Convention became the most viewed Contact video on the internet.
Thanks to Jesse for posting it on .org, there’s a translation into English on that post.
Related: MoM interview with Okotanpe
This dude was a EJC this year, met him, but stupidly, I didn’t recognise who he was, until after we got home. Doh.
He even performed the open stage, but somehow we managed to miss the performance, Doh*2. EJC is BIG!

London Juggling

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Will Hexagonic made this excellent video of the London Juggling Scene, making MoM homesick.

This is my first video, made during 2008 featuring 16 London-based jugglers/object manipulators. I wanted to make a juggling video around London, that would appeal to non-jugglers and jugglers alike.

I may not always juggle, and so I wanted to make a video to remind me in years to come I juggled (in London) and these were the people who were around at the time.

Music – Cinematic Orchestra (featuring Roots Manuva) from the album Every Day.

There are some slick 3 ball moves that clarinet has got there. (2:07 in above clip). The juggling only lasts 10 sec, With tight musicality, the rest of the animation is also great.
Animated short After You’ve Gone featuring the awesome Benny Goodman orchestra. Ahhhh.
