This masterclass is divided into 2 sessions of 4 hours each and will cover up to the minute, cutting edge, contemporary, and experimental juggling techniques collected from all over the globe, with a concentration on Scandinavian trends. Juggling will be looked at in 3 areas- the objects, the body, and rhythm. Additionally, traditional foundation-building basics will be incorporated for a well rounded experience. This workshop will teach concepts and ideas through small, accessible tricks that anyone can instantly learn. All skill levels and prop types are welcomed.

He recently published a book about contemporary juggling titled “5 Catches,” and is currently collaborating with NASA scientists and Cie Ea Eo to make a juggling show which will welcome aliens to Earth, should they ever land here.
