Allies of Gravity – Tomi Soko

A 5 day juggling workshop with Tomi Soko
10-14 October 2017. 11am – 4pm

“A trick without life is a dead juggler, a dead juggler performs without soul so celebration between public and actor is reduced to the formality of the applause”

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

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 idiosyncrasy
  • 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.

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.

Who is the workshop for?
Jugglers of any level.
