How does one create a great juggling performance? In addition to their skills and techniques, how can artists connect juggling with narration, choreography, and music, to create works that embody their uniqueness as performers?
Last year, “Tai Kwun Circus Plays” invited Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala, Co-Artistic Directors of the world’s leading juggling company Gandini Juggling, to conduct the “Circus Camp for Professionals”. With professional and fun instruction from Sean and Kati, the 4-night master classes and workshops allowed local jugglers and choreographers to explore their relationship with choreography and dramaturgy, and how to transform their juggling into a theatrical performance.
Met with great acclaim, Tai Kwun is thrilled to invite Sean and Kati back to conduct an advanced workshop.
Focusing on Gandini Juggling’s recent work LIFE, a contemporary circus production that pays tribute to Merce Cunningham's choreography. This advanced workshop will look at layering information. How does one part of the body do one thing, whilst the other does another (for example, a sequence of throws layered on a series of steps)? The workshops will use random systems to generate material towards a Cunningham Juggling technique.
