More info and full 53 minute video here!
Throw Joy is 53 minutes of sledgehammer hitting ice-cream cake. The result of 561 days spent making 6 clubs tricks, strapping cameras to trees, and filling 8 juggling notebooks with questionable ideas. The video not only includes the most hardcore juggling Wes has ever done with balls, clubs, and rings but keyboards, chairs, tripods, paintings, and wine bottles are also recklessly thrown skyward. After 24 years on earth and 19 years of juggling, Wes finally has the freedom to make a hula hoop out of clubs! Bon appetite!

Balance in Challenge – A workshop in applied Alexander Technique
May 19th – 25th, 2014
With Peter Sweet and Jeanine Ebnother Trott
This is a highly personalized workshop. You will have the opportunity to develop a rich understanding of your own movement patterns and acquire a set of tools for reducing tension in any activity. In three one-on-one Alexander Technique lessons, we will work with you on improving focus, equilibrium and the ability to stay present. Throughout the 18 hours of group class we will provide situations that allow you to test your own limits, step out of your comfort zones and see how you react to a variety of challenges. Exploring simple exercises from physical theater, martial arts, dance and juggling (no previous experience required) we will observe how a heightened sense of ease can help us learn skills, interact with other people and connect with an audience.
To conclude the workshop, you will be encouraged to apply the tools that you have studied throughout the week to an activity of your choice, be it your stage act, a skill or even something as simple as sweeping the floor or riding a bicycle.

Much box maddness ensues as Eric visits Japan and everybody shares weird tricks.
I think we need a box category. And I am going to suggest; how ’bout we all drop the ‘cigar’ part of the definition. Its not like we say ‘indian’ clubs, or ‘chinese’ diabolos anymore. Box juggling. Boxes. Box manipulation. Doesn’t that sound better?

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.
