Friday, December 28th, 2012

YouTube Preview Image
Liaison Carbone, is a new spectacle by the French company “Les Objets Volants”, showing next month in Reims, 22, 24 and 25 January 2013.
“Carbon Bond” (Is our translation of the title, but we’re not so hot at translating French, so please forgive us if it is incorrect.)

“After 4 years of teaching experience as a professor at the Academy Fratellini referent, Denis Paumier adventure continues with its alumni. This project brings together five young jugglers around the tradition of juggling and juggling new avenues of language.
Over the tables, performers explore the properties of objects of various shapes: balls, clubs, rings and other like so many atoms that assemble into molecules, to become animate matter.”

Wow. Art and skill! Those big shiney metal spirals look like fun to play with.

Luke Wilson Memorial Donations

Monday, October 29th, 2012


At the start of October we were saddened to hear of the passing of inspirational Club juggler – Luke Wilson .

Sam Veale has set up a Just Giving page
:

Luke lost his battle with oesophageal cancer on October 3rd 2012. He was just a few weeks short of his 36th birthday. His family have nominated Macmillan Cancer Support in honour of the help they provided in the final months of Luke’s life

If you’ve ever Juggled or manipulated anything, please go make a donation, even if if you can only afford just £1 pound. Or perhaps you’ve ever thought that you’d like to make a small donate to MoM as a website, then heres your chance, we don’t need it, give it to Lukes fund.

If you need more information, here is a post by Stevoid on jugglehub, including a link to an obituary in The Stage.
With additional info in the post by Jay Linn.

See also,Luke’s Blog on Circus Geeks, with a wonderful memorial post by Arron Sparks which includes this great tutorial by Luke on how to learn 3 club kick ups:

Lucas Aguirre ”Watch Out!”

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

YouTube Preview Image
This is Lucas Aguirre, a young juggler from the USA with vicious club juggling. His sequences are full of cause and effect where an arm shoots up to catch a club and sets free the club that was previously trapped under his arms and so on. This makes the juggling very fast, dense, and brain stretching to watch. He’s economical with his throws and lavish with how many tricks he uses. Every throws and catch is take full advantage of. I appreciate his bravery at throwing big body moves after each other and sweating so we can have these crazy moments to watch!

Gustaf Rosell ”Sorry won’t cut it”

Gustaf Rosell with ball body throws, bounce, and balance combinations. This zen master is throwing 7 up pirouettes from a cold start directly to a collect with the last ball landing in an elbow balance. His technique is not only high in a transitional sense of catching and throwing with precision but he has figured out how to make incredibly accurate bounce with balls off of his body. Sending them off different sides of the elbows, behind the neck, and performing elbow bounces synch with drops from the same side hand to backwards leg catches. He has really developed his own style of working where it looks like no one else!
