Sounds Like Juggling (2020)
a juggling concert
Sounds Like Juggling is our first dive into the wonderful genre of music-juggling. The show is the result of months of research and fun with instruments and how to juggle them: balls, shakers, balloons, drums, speakers, motion sensors, rubber bands and much more.
Sounds Like Juggling is all about patterns. In juggling, in music, in life. The power and beauty of patterns, but also being stuck in patterns, and breaking free of patterns. An art now more important than ever…
Tight rhythms , totally free improvisations, this unique juggling concert is a crazy playground of movement and sound, where nothing is impossible – if you manage to throw the rules overboard.
