WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?

“Allies of Gravity” is a pedagogical approach for juggling practice and object manipulation. Born from the need to pave new learning strategies. The traditional way of “throw-throw-catch-catch” has fallen short.

The creation of a personal language, the search for individual universes with a personal “own signature” has become, in my opinion, absolutely necessary.

“Allies of Gravity” suggests another perspective of the “juggling-world” facilitating a type of training that inquires in the depths of this art and facilitates those tools that will provide new supports for creation.

Del juego a la improvisación

GENERAL DYNAMICS

We will merge into a searching process crossed by play, improvisation and composition aiming at the creation of small lab-sequences which will allow a concrete way of experimenting and living the new juggling.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Facilitate tools that will allow unstructuring the classic conception of juggling.
  • Seek the personal juggling universe and language that will reinforce each player´s own idiosincracy.
  • Stimulate the singularity of each body to construct a juggling game where the juggler is creator and not reproducer.
  • Analyse in detail the creative process, unveiling the essence of each juggling movement and tuning the eye to observe beyond the trick.
