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. 🙂

MRL #3

get it before it’s gone!!!!

The third and final MRL took place in Stockholm, Sweden, on March 22-25, 2010, with Jay Gilligan, Wes Peden, Luke Wilson, Erik Åberg, Matias Salmenaho, Ron Beeri and Patrik Elmnert.

Over four days we explored tricks, and the objects we do them with. What habits of creation did we have? What props were good for what things? How does choice of material change the technique?

The video goes offline November 30th! you snooze you loose!

About manipulation

About Manipulation” is a project wanted, created and directed by Moon and Ministry of Manipulation. We’ve tought there a lot of videos with people playing, and so few videos with people talking about their experiences and ideas in contact juggling. So we’ve tried to show you what’s behind a contact juggler, and what he lives with this amazing art.

Ejc was the perfect moment to do this full length (19 mins.) movie; we are sorry because there were so much great contact jugglers we’ve missed at Ejc (Okotanpe, Richard Hartnell, Kyle Johnson..just some big names)..but as you probably know weather was terrible and time wasn’t so much. We’ve chosen some interesting, new and old, personalities in contact juggling world, and ask them what’s contact juggling, how’s changing and where is going. So, this is a gift for the contact juggling community and for the new wave of contact jugglers. Hope you’ll like it…Please feel free to share it wherever you want. Big thanks to Stefano Ricci and Federico Tasso for the patience and help.

And obviously..thank YOU for watching!

..
i remember that in this moment
aragorn talk to me today
and say that he saw moving with emotion
and that i break the technique and touch something that many jugglers are looking for
and became a state of mind

Chris Anderson: How web video powers global innovation

YouTube Preview Image

TED’s Chris Anderson says the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation — a self-fueling cycle of learning that could be as significant as the invention of print. But to tap into its power, organizations will need to embrace radical openness.

Does a nice job of explaining the phenomenon that we’ve all been watching, the explosion of online video = the explosion of awesome new juggling styles and techniques.
