Professional meetings

From April 14 to 16, 2023

Friday, April 14 from 10am to 6pm at Cinéma l’Étoile, La Courneuve

Matinee of the Jonglages magazine :
In front of, behind the object?

From 10:00 to 12:00

This discussion will draw on the concrete and metaphorical meanings that such a question can take. Among the variety of positions that can be put into play by a creative team, what are the consequences of putting oneself behind, in front or behind, erasing oneself, making something or someone disappear or (re)appear? So many different relationships to the elements (body, objects, light, sound,…) that several people who have contributed to juggling creations will propose to examine.

With : Gaëlle Coppée, Félix Didou, Nicanor de Elia & Luna Rousseau
Moderation: Cyrille Roussial

Debate : Meeting organized by ARTCENA and the festival Rencontre des Jonglages :
What it means to miss

From 2:15 to 3:45 pm

Fall, error, mistake or failure… what does failure in juggling mean? A real risk-taking, a dramatic trick, a learning method or a dodge in the face of the obligation to succeed? Does the failure finally express the uncontrollability inherent in juggling? Artists and thinkers will share their thoughts and experiences.

With : Quentin Rioual, Sean Gandini, Morgan Cosquer & Roxana Küwen
Moderator: Gwenola David (Director of ARTCENA)

Presentation of juggling projects
From 4pm to 6pm

8 companies with a juggling creation project will present their project in front of an audience composed of professionals (programmers, residency and diffusion places, producers, artists), researchers and informed amateurs.

Saturday April 15: Meeting with Anne-Agathe Prin

From 12 to 1:30 pm

For more than twenty years, Anne-Agathe Prin has been both a witness and an actor in various initiatives that have contributed to the development of juggling. In this dialogue, she is invited to reflect on experiences that illustrate her interest and commitment to juggling.
She will thus have the opportunity to come back on several moments which counted for her, whether they concern meetings, practices or works and events which she attended or even made possible, like the juggling conventions of Carvin.

With : Cyrille Roussial and Anne-Agathe Prin

Sunday, April 16: Derivinga circus work: the case of MATERIA

From 12 to 1:30 pm

Within the framework of the European project The Sphere the piece MATERIA by Andrea Salustri is the object of a derivative creation Materia 3.0 Aerogami by Utka Gavuzzo. The two authors and the team that accompanied them will discuss the various issues raised by this experimental process: what is the iteration and derivation of a
juggling work? The modalities of the repertoire recovery in the field of juggling creations and more broadly of the circus.

With : Andrea Salustri, Utka Gavuzzo, Cyrille Roussial, Erik Bordeleau & Vincent Berhault
