Juggling – Music
Prototype is the artistic representation of 5 years spent researching advanced juggling concepts. This work unites a series of collaborations and is divided into two main parts. One half of the show is dedicated to new juggling skills, inspired by new juggling props. The other part makes live music for the show through the juggling itself. The result is a rare collection of juggling imagery that has never been seen before.
