How does one achive to create a great juggling performance that is of high artistic quality as well as etnertaining? 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?
Since 2019, “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” online. With professional and fun instruction from Sean and Kati, the 2-year 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 to return to Tai Kwun and meet the participants in person!
Focusing on Gandini Juggling’s recent work LIFE, a contemporary circus production that pays tribute to Merce Cunningham's choreography, this year’s workshop will look at Cunninham techniques with juggling. Together with Jennifer Goggans from Merce Cunningham Dance Company, participants will be having a fun and inspiring workshops and get to create works with other local professionals.
