The Art of Juggling: Master Class by Viktor Kee (Ireland) July 21-23
Posted July 2, 2014
Juggling as an art form has been evolving constantly. With every generation comes a different focus to the realm of object manipulation. However, when we decide to perform and share our joy for juggling with others, certain principles become constant or universal, transcending all generations. They can be known as the universal aesthetics of juggling.
This master class, given by Viktor Kee, is a rare opportunity to enter into the world of juggling aesthetics, trick transitions, and business management as understood by this great performer.
Viktor Kee, a circus juggler, is best known for his fluid, elegant, and physically integrated style of juggling. The act that he created in the mid 1990s has remained an international success. It is still being performed on tour in Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion. He is currently on tour with a new creation of his, Amaluna. Viktor received a silver clown from Monte Carlo in 2003 as well as a gold medal in 1994 at the Paris festival Cirque du Demain.
The workshop is intended as a master class for proficient jugglers who are looking to develop physical transitions between tricks, a more efficient practice structure, and a keener eye for trick analysis. The class will also explore character development and integration into juggling.
All proceeds from this master class will go to the Viktor Kee Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote juggling and juggling culture for future generations to come. Projects include future juggling and performance workshops, as well as assistance in publishing the platinum edition of Karl-Heinz Ziethen’s book, Complete History of Juggling.
