MoM is wishing the Katapult team every success with this new project.
Benoit Vivian from Cie Voila l’Enchantement has been working out of Belgium since 1998 as a dancer, a juggler, a clown with a huge list of theatrical accomplishments under his belt. This video is a one off improvisation he edited, just as a test of the Go Pro camera. He calls this character “un peu barée” which translates to a little bit silly.
LEVITATION is a visuals collaboration between Sila Sveta and Anna Abalikhina. The dancer is Jury Chulkov. All visuals are created in real time, and this video has no post-production added. This tech company creates technological narrations world wide, with beautiful 3D mapping.
As a special treat you can find the story board process here:
there are a few places left! So sign up for this years expanded edition of our Balance in Challenge workshop in Berlin. 8 days of pinpointed practical ‘research’ on your Self, your arts, your ways of life.
See you there,
Balance in Challenge is an intensive program designed to expand your awareness, deepen your understanding of your own movement and provide you with tools for staying present under pressure.
In three one-on-one Alexander Technique lessons, we will work with you on improving your basic coordination by quieting extra tension and energizing your system towards a dynamic state of poise. In 30 hours of group classes we will explore exercises from physical theatre, clowning, martial arts, dance and juggling. Within this playground, we will observe how each of our ways of moving affects everything that we do. We will challenge you to keep breathing, stay grounded and respond to many situations with ease.
This is NOT a workshop about learning tricks, dance moves or clowning. BUT it will present you with powerful tools to develop HOW you move, dance, juggle, perform and live in the world. Come prepared to play at your own ‘edges’, the places just on the borders of your comfort zones. Ideal for actors, dancers, circus performers and anyone who is interested in the relationship between movement, health and expression. No experience required.
“It is no exaggeration to say that the insights I gained will stay with me forever, enriching my personal and professional development.” Liam Wilson Juggler/Artist

Darwin Pimentel has again collected and edited a number of videos for the collab 2015.
Japanese contact juggler Metra, who has been featured on this blog many times before, has returned after several years absence from the scene with a set of new videos and new techniques. I’m especially impressed with his style of small silicon ball multiball, and many of the techniques he showcases in this video are totally new to me.
Metra linked me to several videos that he was using as inspiration, check out these clips below for a completely different approach to ‘palmspinning’ technique.
