Juggling Workshop with Jacob D'Eustachio Oct 18
Posted October 4, 2015
When I’m performing my two goals are to give a consistently solid show and present my own style of juggling.
In this workshop I’ll show you how to teach yourself both.
The workshop will last three hours and be split into two sections: technique and creation.
At times it can be hard to know if we’re making progress in our juggling.
Let’s learn how to practice and create in a more efficient and fun way. Just as importantly, let's learn how to make sense of what we’re doing.
We’ll explore different ways of breaking down the tricks we want to learn, approaching our goals, and creating manageable objectives. We’ll also explore different ways of warming up and a few technique exercises that help with every trick and provide a basis for problem solving.
One of my favorite things about juggling is its diversity (Viktor Kee and Alan Sulc both juggle balls, but are close to polar opposites). How do we work on finding our own style and creating our own tricks and routines?
For the second part of the workshop, we’ll discover different ways of creating tricks both individually and in groups. We’ll use both physical starting points like our bodies, and the space, and mental starting points like our daily routines, and ideas/stories we want to convey.
We’ll also touch on ways of creating sequences and acts.
For this workshop, participants should all be able to juggle three balls. (We will be focusing on techniques to apply to your own tricks so the workshop is suitable for jugglers of all abilities.)
Please bring your juggling props, and clothes and shoes you feel comfortable moving in.
Jacob D’Eustachio began juggling at age 10 and landed his first professional contract (juggling with the Zoppé Family Circus) at 17. Later that year he began studying privately with Swiss juggler Kris Kremo. He is a graduate of Canada’s Ecole de Cirque de Quebec, and has performed in 13 countries on 5 continents. He most recently finished nine months with Celebrity Cruises.
