A hula hoop floats amidst a stunning location of México city. As it moves, a dancer appears and plays with the hoop. Every movement creates lines, impressive shapes and lights that float in the space as if being drawn to gradually create an impressive sculpture in movement.

Silvia Pavone is an amazing hoop dancer. She wrote us to show results of Hoop Isolation Lab:
“This hoop isolation film is the result of a short period of research and development that was supported by the Circus Space and the funding from Lab:Time – experiments in circus. Francesca Martello and I wanted to explore the possibilities of circus, and specifically hoop manipulation, on film. We originally started our R&D together with Lynn Scott and Helen Orford, with the idea that the piece would be made for film and on location. However, when Jackson’s Lane theatre gave Lab:Time winners the opportunity to perform their work in progress in a mixed bill of freshly created performances, we reoriented our focus towards creating a stage performance. I hope that we will be able to keep developing this work further, both for film and the stage. Special thanks to Jon Aaron Green, director and producer and Ben Green, editor of the film!”
We like it.
News from the future, they’re proposing this as a way to help learn to play a musical instrument. Mortal fools, wasting their time playing musical instruments, when they could be juggling.
More info, only in Japan.
One day, we won’t need to practice contact juggling, we will download tricks directly into our brain implants. Ahead of the game, MoM have a new introductory offer: We will sell you palm spinning 10 balls-in-1 hand for just £10. (You supply the balls).
