Adaptive Juggling: Making juggling accessible for all!
Ruzhin and Tess went to Prague Sept.16 – 22nd 2018 for an Erasmus+ Social Circus project. They learnt the Craig Quat theory of Juggling – Juggling as an experience versus juggling as expression. Craig has invented juggling props that do not require the participant to throw and catch. The Quat Props allow the participant to experience the rhythm and the orbital sense of juggling.
CIRQUEON, the social circus organisation in Prague, work in a school for children with disabilities. The project they attended visited the school and then over three days, in a wood/metal workshop they created new props using the Craig Quat theory based on the specific disabilities of the young people at the school. This project culminated on a final day of exploring the new props with the disabled young people.
Both Ruzhin and Tess have come back inspired and excited to not only share this theory but they would like to work in this way with disabled communities in Bristol in the future. We invite you to join us for a fun one-hour workshop to learn how to teach Craig Quat’s theory of juggling. Suitable for anyone interested in learning inclusive juggling.
