Explorations


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.

This dive in its reflection is the occasion to live some vertigo. Disturbances that make us aware of the incommensurability and porosity of the borders that delimit our vision of juggling.

Item


Stop motion, a technique of modern juggling


Named in reference to the cinematographic field, “stop motion” defines here a juggling technique based on blocking.

A thorough exploration of the subject, from its conditions of appearance to its practical, dramaturgical and pedagogical implications, through aesthetic analyses supported by a rich corpus of stage works and videos.

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.

Sound Documentary


Valentina. How can I put it?


Three clubs, microphones, a recorder. A juggler and a gleaner of sounds.

Valentina Santori asked Dominique Duthuit to join her for a week of wandering in March 2021. This trip inaugurated during the confinement Périple 21, a juggling performance of several months through France. From this journey, the sound designer shares with us some fragments of the materials that were sources of exchange and inspiration.

This sound score tells the story of the transformation of a juggling act that can only be expressed in the interaction with the other. A poem to be listened to with headphones, which inaugurates our first file dedicated to the writings.
