New isolation concepts for 8ring manipulation. Ryan has an indiegogo for a new online 8ring workshop, info can be found here.
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.
Pilolip shows us an amazing array of distorted boxes, crazy timechanges and solid isolations in his most recent video.
I’ve been working with him a lot on the Piryokopi project… and im amazed by his dedication to the work. Check the related posts for more Pilolip greatness, he has been featured here a lot in the past year.
Marvin Ong send us some information about him and his work.
Marvin is originally from Malaysia but now based in Los Angeles. He has been studying objects manipulation for 5 years now. Recently he started getting Master Ong’s Prop Shop of the ground, focusing on practice props and practicing to be present.
Nice video making use of the air current from a big vent in the ground. Check the youtube link for some details in Spanish.
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!”
