Workshop Plan for Aleje 2022

Juggling in Movement:
This workshop focuses on the handling of the object as a key to integrate body movement into your juggling. The aim is to allow a more expressive, more organic way of juggling which originates from the technique itself. The workshop will cover technical training and tools for creative research. We will furthermore look at movement techniques and practice methodology - understanding juggling as an overarching practice. 

The workshop includes amongst other: 
-  improvement of body posture, height/spin control, efficient throwing and catching techniques,
- insights into a healthy practice structure
- juggling and manipulation in context of body movement, relation between body and object

- tools to build juggling sequences
- insights into specific juggling techniques such as detailed club manipulation (body rolls, contact moves, balances), multiplexes, windows, kick-ups, footjuggling, etc. 

- exercises for understanding and implementing rhythm and use of space into juggling
