Denis Paumier Writing Juggling

At EJC Denis Paumier will give his masterclass “Writing Juggling” at EJC. He will approach juggling through its mathematical notation: Siteswap. By shuttling back and forth between theory and practise, allying movement and rhythm, body and props, the participants will develop a learning and composition method for solo and group juggling.

The workshop consists of several classes, given on the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th of August. The masterclasses will be 3 hours per day, from 9.30 until 12.30. There is a maximum of 15 participants. Participation costs €30,- p.p. Pre-requisite: have a regular juggling practise. It will mainly working with balls but other props are welcome too.

Lecture: History of circus theatre
Harm van der Laan – Circus history teacher at Codarts Circus Arts
Many people define contemporary circus as ‘circus skills mixed with theatre and dance’ whereas the classical circus supposedly has always been all about tricks and spectacle. In reality circus has never been a static artform and many different forms of theatrical circus have existed througout the ages. In this lecture we’ll take a closer look at some of these different forms of circus, from the plains of Central Asia thousands of years ago to 17th century Venice, 19th century Vaudeville theaters and many more.
