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.
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!”
Trailer for a shiney new Manipulation DVD, with some amazingly talented artists.
Visual Juggling Project is a succession of suggestions on object motion & body language, highlighting the graphic side of the discipline. It is a collaboration of 12 international jugglers & manipulators, with various props, including; balls, clubs, rings, poi, devilstick & frisbee. It has been made from the shared reflections, explorations & experiences of those major stakeholders on the dynamic relationships between tech & flow. This 80 Minutes, Hi Definition video (with 19 chapters) is the one to get to become aware of the potential of this unexplored playground.
Following the “Sh*t X say” meme, this Tongue in cheek video is poking fun at Spinners, from the Vulcan crew of…err spinners.
“Do it again, only less sh*t.”
We’ll add: “Faster with less control.” “Do you know G?”, “Can you do that Anti-spin?” is the new, “Can you do that isolated?” is the new, “Can you do that BTB?”
So who is going to make “Sh*t contact jugglers say?”
POICLOCK was inspired by UNIQLO’s uniqlock which is a sort of fashion show and contemporary dance clock.
It’s pretty sweet, if you embed the POICLOCK on your page (or the WORLD POI CLOCK when it arrives) you get the time and random awesome poi videos and it links back to Yuta’s site and you can view it on a map along with everyone else who has embedded the POICLOCK and then click chase poiclocks all over the world! Sweet.
