2 years ago all my friends in Europe started asking me ” have you met this young kid Joseph? He is amazing.”

I later met him at the Swiss juggling convention was deeply impressed by his passion for contact juggling. I immediately subscribed to his youtube channel, Juggling for Cake and he has released some great contact and multiball and 8ring stuff. Seriously just click those links.

They are all full of stuff you’ve never thought of before but it is brilliant. I should have been posting all of them on the Ministry all year, but these recent 3ball videos are just too good so here ya go, this is Joseph and he is seriously one of the best new contemporary jugglers that exist.

Hoop Isolation Lab: Time Experiments

Friday, July 13th, 2012

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. :)

3rd International MoM Workshop in Switzerland

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Dear jugglers/manipulators,

I have the pleasure to announce the 3rd International Ministry of Manipulation Workshop!!!!
5 full days of classes with MoM crew and guests from 3 continents: Ryan Mellors (CA), Jeanine Ebnöther (CH), Einhim Short (IRE), Caleb Trott (AUS) and Laura Vogel (D).
For a change (and for easy and free accommodation) it will be happening in Switzerland this time. The (world) music freaks amongst us will be in heaven too, as our host, the OskarMaus Festival is also programming a mass of musicians. Yay. Bring musical instruments as well as juggling props.

MoM will be offering workshop blocks in the following techniques:
contact juggling – body rolling – ball and hoop isolations – club manipulation – contact/double and acro staff – staff juggling – organic juggling – body manipulation – multiple hoops – 8rings – stickball – windstyle – partnering – cj and Alexander Technique – improvisation – musicality for object manipulation – working on/building sequences/an act – collaboration with live musician/group

This workshop is for whoever likes to go deeper in their manipulation, get fresh or unusual inputs, try new techniques (there will be gear to play with!) and exchange with other participants. If you are a keen observer but have never had a go, come along and you will be amazed.

Dates: Monday 3rd Sept – Friday 7th Sept 2012
Times: 9am – 1pm and 2pm – 6pm (= 8hrs!!!! Yay!! Prepare for brain implosions and muscle ache, haha!)
Price: 450 CHF (roughly 370 Euros)
big circus tent, hard and soft floor spaces, mirror wall, Open Stages daily, fire shows and concerts during the week, free play all day and night; market; MoM Variete on Sat 8th; music festival 8th and 9th Sept. (extra ticket).
Festival website will be updated and online on June 12th.

As a MoM workshop participant you can choose the classes you want to follow every day and can put up your tent in the camping area. There is space for camper vans too.

And the great thing is: the closely sited Swiss Juggling Convention will take place just the weekend before (Aug. 31st – Sept 2nd).

So get your mates together and come to beautiful Switzerland, the heart of Europe (am I being patriotic?!? It actually IS pretty here!) Spaces are limited. First come, first served. Should the financial factor be a problem get in touch with Jeanine.
For signing up and info contact jea9 (at) ministryofmanipulation.com

See you there :)
