ShoeBox 2012 (NJ) May 22
Posted March 13, 2012
Experience modern juggling, object manipulation, and new circus up close and personal!
The Shoebox Tour is a modern juggling show that has performed all over the world in Canada, Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Japan, and Iceland. This spring, the show will return to America with a new international cast. The Shoebox Tour earned its name by creating a show specifically for the tiny environment of Brauđhúsiđ at Grímsbæ in Reykjavík. Originally intended to overcome the "business" part of "show business," the tour was imagined to take place outside of established theatrical venues; even playing in places "as small as a shoebox."
This is the 2012 tour's only stop in the NY and NJ area.
Wes Peden has been voted the number one juggler in the industry for the past three years. This year's tour was created by Peden and Jay Gilligan, who are both International Jugglers' Association Gold Medal Winners. The duo created more than 700 new tricks made for four hands, as they researched, documented, and choreographed these tricks during an intense four-month training session in Germany.
