From Jive’s notes on juggling, translated by Babelfish:

The singularity of my juggling rests on a whole of components such as traditional juggling, atypical juggling, choreographic work and the work of actor. My research is based on the juggling of yesterday and today. …

The technique developed with these objects rises directly from the techniques of traditional jugglings, but, the singularity of the object itself brings to create new images and propels the juggler in various universes “the skilful diversion of the object to the service of a new poetic language…” …

My report/ratio with juggling is very graphic. The inspiration comes from Michael MOSCHEN, American juggler, who in the Eighties revolutionized juggling by his geometrical work around the fixed point and of the graphic insulation. This work is close to the illusion by some with dimensions. It gives a life specific to the object, personifies it. The whole of these research orientations is related to my own history of juggler and my universe of creator. In this creation, I want to propose a language located between the art of the juggler, the dancer and the MIME.
