The workshop will be delivered in a playful and fun way that will keep participants engaged, while at the same time learning new skills.
– Day 1: The artist will show 6 different types of juggling techniques, and will explain the fundamentals in juggling. This presentation will also include a short clown presentation by the artist himself, while showcasing the endless possibilities of this Art form. The participants will start making their own jugging balls, which they will be able to take home after the completion of the workshop.
– Day 2: The participants will start learning the basic principals for juggling with the balls they made on the previous day. After some practice and coordination games, they will start with the second part of the workshop, exploring clown characters.
– Day 3: The participants will review some of the concepts explored on the day before and will be introduced to another type of juggling (poi & stick). For the second part of this day, they will review some clown character building and will add some props, without the use of any spoken word. This way, they will explore the possibilities of communication of the language of a clown and its inclusivity.
– Day 4: The session will focus on reviewing juggling techniques and will give the participants some exercises to continue with the practice of the new art form learnt. The workshops will end with some short clown scenes, and juggling tricks where the participants will share their learning with the community at Karangahake, during Market day.
