Upcoming trainings

Amateur training

Axel Martinez

The first day's program is common to each workshop: Keys and tricks to juggle 3 balls and more, in order to progress alone, following the workshop. It aims to transmit exercises to allow participants to learn basic techniques on their own, to reflect on the importance of writing in training, and to encourage an opening to the world of juggling.

Professional training

Olivier Burlaud

The workshop will propose to share and experiment together tools for composing a juggling in motion, inspired in particular by the notion of "stop-motion".
Among other things, we will deal with blocking, multiplexes, space, the notions of fluidity and concordance, in order to develop a vocabulary and juggled sentences.

Professional training

Liza Van Brakel

Liza van Brakel has developed a personal juggling style coming from a non-juggling background. She started out as an acrobatic dancer before becoming a juggler. She took juggling as a manipulation of objects and combined it with the movements discovered in acro-dance. She first played with one object for a long time before moving on to two or three. She has created a unique style based on movement and physicality.
