Nick Laffey has a wonderful obsession with trying to eliminate all throws from his club juggling patterns and replacing them all with balances and clever manipulations. I think it is great.

I’m not sure if Midtown Greenway got posted here, but it should have been. Same with the wierd slowmo clip. I can’t stop watching it. So great.

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.

Gustaf Rosell ”Sorry won’t cut it”

Monday, October 22nd, 2012
YouTube Preview Image

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!

My mate Brett doing some sweet double staff contact, way better than me.

He might look like a bit of a hippy in a field, but he’s also doing some post-grad neuroscience stuff. How about those apples?

I personally didn’t think it was possible, without spinning, or a squishy middle ball. This guy wasn’t so sure… Peter Bone, balancing like a champ.
