Juggling through the lens of stop motion


In order to put Olivier Burlaud’s contribution dedicated to stop motion into perspective, the magazine’s team asked the juggler Julien Ladenburger to consider and illustrate the place of this stopping principle in his practice and his career.

While sharing with us his reflections and artistic research, he testifies to the interest that this notion has for him and what it brings him.


 

Entre la vie et la mort

Essay


The paradox of juggling


“When does my juggling die? When is it born?”

Conversation of a juggler with himself, in a game of absurd, smiling and… paradoxically enlightening.

Essay


Juggling with death


From a deep and meaningful expression, the juggling author delivers a poetic mediation intended to characterize death in juggling.

By considering both the vitality and the deadly character of various facts and phenomena, he reflects with humility, humor and provocation on his double condition of human being and juggler.

Sound Documentary


Valentina. How can I put it?


Three clubs, microphones, a recorder. A juggler and a gleaner of sounds. A poem to listen to with headphones.

This sound score tells the story of the transformation of a juggling act that can only be expressed in the interaction with the other.

Novella


Pim pam


An attempt to write from the piece for seven jugglers and a drummer Dans les plis du paysage, resulting from the meeting between Esther Friess and the scenic universe of the Collectif Petit Travers.

The author, who borrows a lexical field close to the one intimately summoned to the stage by the company, gives us a literary experience of juggling, illustrated by some drawings and photographs of the show.

Call for papers


Writings: dealing with juggling


The editorial committee of the magazine Jonglages is opening a first thematic dossier dedicated to a particular meaning of the word “writing”, a meaning that refers to juggling inscribed or destined to be inscribed at the very heart of a work and its creative process.

Because writing with juggling implies a variety of practices and works, this call for contributions was conceived as an invitation to establish benchmarks to best speak of what exists among juggling.
