Organic juggling

obektido 14022012-5764

Beginning of the course: 8th of January 2017 


The aim of the Organic juggling is to develop the ability for expression (including the artistic one) through combination of contemporary and juggling techniques. In the classes you will be able to explore:

-      - Basic ways for throwing the ball in the air and how it reflects on the body reactions

-      - The following of an object with the gaze and the conscious unfollowing of the object

-      - The connection of the juggler with his object

-      - Proper body placement

-      - Isolations of particular parts of the body in the space and in the same time movement of other ones

-      - The point of balance of a ball when it is positioned on the body

-      - Physical spaces which we can experiment with

-      - Changes of the rhythm and the quality of movement

-      - Optical illusions

With the help of the technique ,,Alexander “ the course will focus on the wielding of the particular movement with a ball or a juggling figure by highly conscious repetitions, releasing the unnecessary pressure to the point of pure integration of the movement into the physical vocabulary.

Will be demonstrated how the expression with juggling is like telling a story or drawing in the space – with pauses, exclamations, question marks and commas, stammer , oblivion. The working process will be focused on the expressions through this form of art by using mimics, contemporary dance forms, theater techniques and improvisation.

Will be developed short individual and group variations and during June the results of the work in the classes will be presented affront of audience at Derida Dance Center.
