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.

I am always surprised when other hoopers dont know about Pilolip. His latest video of his isohoop routine is so flowy and isolated and perfect. It currently has less than 200 views, and i think we can fix that
Filmed at the same time as his ball routine, which is equally amazing.
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.
Steve bags has assembled together a great compilation of videos from the last century of vintage hoop rolling, juggling and spinning. All these clips have been assembled from Juggling.tv and juggler.com.
Bags has launched a new blog, The Hoop Hub with online hoop tutorials, hoop articles and performance videos.
This video begins by showing a kendama battle; a group of kendama enthusiasts throwing a series of increasingly complex tricks in a backyard competition. The small crowd explodes with excitement when the winner throws his final move, they celebrate together as if this was THE main event of the year. As a viewer, it is a unique glimpse into a very small world.
This is a collection of those awesome moments that happen when you are in the company of amazing people (and the camera just happens to be pointing in the right direction at the right time) Kyle Johnson makes the best videos, and I think he understands what this ‘ministry’ thing is all about better than we do.
Also, Canada boxes
If you’re in UK or Europe and into hooping there’s an event next weekend in Bristol, UK, the South West Hoop Conference, which is well worth checking out.
MoM dropped into part one today, and here’s our mini review. It was fab.
- Atmosphere – Really friendly and a lot of fun.
- Teaching – Super good, top quality international teachers.
- Food – Mmmmmm and lots of it included in the ticket price.
- Tea – Free and brewed properly (This get’s our vote).
We found out that there are some tickets still available for the second weekend, If you’re into hoop, it’s highly recommended, not cheap, but the money goes towards paying for excellent hoop teachers, which is always worth it in the long run.
Plus Ed is teaching a Waving (Wiggly Ed Dance) workshop next weekend and Mrs MoM is teaching a solo Charleston workshop next Sunday.
Edit, now with video.
Some new ideas with eightrings by Moon. Hope you like it..! thanks for watching!
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.
IsoBaton and Ball routine coming soon… www.piryokopi.net
