Piryokopi – 2011 Hoop Isolation Routine

In August 2011, Ryan Mellors, Pich, Pilolip and Okotanpe met together at the ‘Maison Des Jonglages” in Paris to try and solve a problem:  contact juggling and manipulation performances often have a small visual effect,  ideal for video but very difficult to play to a large stage or stadium venue. We wanted to create material which  communicated large graphical effects to a distant crowd, and we developed 3 short ‘graphic manipulation’ choreographies which we are excited to be sharing with you now.

We feel this is a good first step in our ongoing collaboration.

Jotti – Contact Juggling


Sorry, my Russian (?) isn’t good enough to tell you more than the auto translate of the youtube caption:

This magical video from me, February 2, 2010 at Sur la Mayor in Mordzhime / GOA to address a French yoga Cristiano (Jotti). For a whole year like his mount, but realized that the effect it will disappear presence, so watch the 12 minute speech, shot and one shot without any editing! Sincerely, Oleg Floppy.

A unique and individual style combining yoga with contact. It’s 12 minutes long, if it’s too long for you skip to 9:00 minutes for a nice bit of magic 🙂

About manipulation

About Manipulation” is a project wanted, created and directed by Moon and Ministry of Manipulation. We’ve tought there a lot of videos with people playing, and so few videos with people talking about their experiences and ideas in contact juggling. So we’ve tried to show you what’s behind a contact juggler, and what he lives with this amazing art.

Ejc was the perfect moment to do this full length (19 mins.) movie; we are sorry because there were so much great contact jugglers we’ve missed at Ejc (Okotanpe, Richard Hartnell, Kyle Johnson..just some big names)..but as you probably know weather was terrible and time wasn’t so much. We’ve chosen some interesting, new and old, personalities in contact juggling world, and ask them what’s contact juggling, how’s changing and where is going. So, this is a gift for the contact juggling community and for the new wave of contact jugglers. Hope you’ll like it…Please feel free to share it wherever you want. Big thanks to Stefano Ricci and Federico Tasso for the patience and help.

And obviously..thank YOU for watching!
