Professional training

Neta Oren

This workshop will focus on the rhythmic choreography of juggling. We'll also be working on connecting juggled material to various written texts, and playing with how movement and words merge to create surprises, paradoxes or shifts in meaning. The mornings will be devoted to rhythmic and physical juggling, and in the afternoons we'll be writing juggling to text and exploring the possible links between the two.

Professional training

Emil Dahl

In this rare masterclass, a collaboration between Emil Dahl and Maison de Jonglage, you'll have the possibility of getting a unique insight into Emils work. Here you'll go through the methods and techniques that were used in the creation of HOLY and the latest concepts and ideas, that make up their philosophical view of juggling. Since balance has been the focus of Emils research the past decade, this masterclass will have that as a starting point and branch out to different parts of life.
