“About Manipulation” is a project wanted, created and directed by Moon and Ministry of Manipulation. We’ve tought there a lot of videos with people playing, and so few videos with people talking about their experiences and ideas in contact juggling. So we’ve tried to show you what’s behind a contact juggler, and what he lives with this amazing art.
Ejc was the perfect moment to do this full length (19 mins.) movie; we are sorry because there were so much great contact jugglers we’ve missed at Ejc (Okotanpe, Richard Hartnell, Kyle Johnson..just some big names)..but as you probably know weather was terrible and time wasn’t so much. We’ve chosen some interesting, new and old, personalities in contact juggling world, and ask them what’s contact juggling, how’s changing and where is going. So, this is a gift for the contact juggling community and for the new wave of contact jugglers. Hope you’ll like it…Please feel free to share it wherever you want. Big thanks to Stefano Ricci and Federico Tasso for the patience and help.
And obviously..thank YOU for watching!
Pilolip is a french contact manipulation artist who I worked with during the Piryokopi collaboration (alongside Okotanpe and Pich) We will be releasing a trailer of our new show fairly soon, but until then… here are a few clips of his work.
Also, check out his heavy heavy heavy 1ball isolation, strobing and waving stuff.
This is awesome. Tricks? Techniques? Who cares, how weird is it to get a hula hoop point of view?
My entire world consists of this woman and she keeps rolling around inside of me. Weird. I definitely haven’t had any dreams like that. I feel like a hamster ball… Like I’m the hamster ball, and the woman is the hamster. But we’re not on a journey, we’re just standing there. Weird. Anyway.
Some cool tricks in Prox Box Chronicles #9 (thanks to Kyle for the edit!). Table Juggling Ftw. nice diabolo stuff.
Relaxing video with great Hula Hooping by Silvia Pavone. Check her blog and website for more info.
Love the cartwheel at 2:22.
Also love it wen videos colour co-ordinate with this website so well!
Brecken finally gets the film quality she deserves. Thou this is two years old and not exactly always showing off the most technical of manipulations… it’s more MTV style, hello belly shots. Brecken still rocks out her completely unique style of hoop dance.
Ryan has compiled his last decade of research into contact juggling and manipulation in this massive post on DotOrg. Check it out; plenty of good stuff in there that you might have missed.
