From Kaskade, The European Juggling Magazine, Issue
84 2006. Gabi Keast Writes ...
"A compilation of modern contact juggling, DVD,
135 min, directed by Jago Parfitt, Fullmoon Performers,
production Beard Juggling Equipment, available at www.beard.co.uk
There are lots of reasons to get excited about this
DVD. The aesthetic shots of stunningly beautiful countryside
and the fascinatingly lit stage performances (congratulations
to the lighting engineers) are a feast for the eyes,
just as the well-chosen, mostly meditative background
music is a feast for the ears. This is also the backdrop
for 16 of the best contact jugglers performing today,
who demonstrate their skills in long sequences varying
from open air to stage settings. As you would expect,
acrylic balls feature prominently, but we also get to
see some highly original sequences with hoops, clubs,
cigar boxes and poles.
in pictures with English “subtitles” provides
a detailed explanation of the basic moves of contact
juggling. Interviews with the artists themselves open
our eyes to what lies beyond what we have seen.
This is a “how-to” DVD for beginners, a
pool of ideas for advanced jugglers, and a nice relaxing
evening in front of the telly for couch potatoes."
