Luke Wilson Memorial Donations


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 Β£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:

Typically Luke, well considered, precise, incredibly technical, inspirational and showing the high standards that Luke set in everything he did.
Luke you are very sadly missed.

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!

Teku – Salaryman

Super project by our friend Teku. 30 minutes of bodyrolling/fingerstalls with RdL Props (Rings + Clubs)/Babal/Diablo.

“I’ve made plenty of videos up until now but I felt like creating something more substantial for a change. The idea came several months ago during a very low point at my job, so I used all that pent up energy and frustration and decided to create some new ideas and see if I could take contact juggling somewhere that maybe hasn’t been explored before. Theres plenty more to be done but this is a first step towards where I would like to be with my juggling in the future.” (Teku)

We think this is a big inspirational gift for the contact juggling community. BIG UP for you Darren, really!

Thanks for watching

Hoop Isolation Lab: Time Experiments

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. πŸ™‚
