Berlin Juggling Convention 2014 photos (all full resolution files)

My 11th Berlin Juggling Convention in a row! The show organizer, Corinna, asked me to take photos of the Gala Show.

The easiest place to view all the photos is on Facebook, where you can like, share, comment, tag… and otherwise see what other people think about them. See the Facebook album.

However, I do like to share every photo here on my blog, and make it easy for those interested to download the highest resolution and best quality image.

Nederlands Jongleer Festival 2014 Fight Night

Congratulations to Iver for coming in first in his second 500 point Fight Night in a row, this time at the NJF 2014!

Top four results:
1st: Iver Tronstad
2nd: Brook Roberts
3rd: Nathan Biggs-Penton
4th: Jordy Sanchez

All other results can be found at the Nederlands Jongleer Festival 2014 Fight Night page. Thanks to Brook Roberts for organizing this event and submitting all the details.

One minute of footage of the Fight Night can be seen in this convention montage, starting at 5 minutes 38 seconds:

Iver has now won 6 matches in a row in the knockout rounds, but even more impressively, he’s also gone 27 matches in qualification without losing too, for a total of 33 matches in a row unbeaten! He moves up to third place in the current Fight Night (beta) rankings, and jumps ahead of Luke and Brook to go first in the 2014 points race.

A minor rankings points rule change, for ease of counting and ranking, is that everyone who enters a tournament is awarded a minimum of a single point. This means they get a point even without a single win in the round robin qualifications, or without progressing past the group combat qualification rounds. This means that there are now 109 players listed in the current Fight Night (beta) rankings instead of 103, and the number will only increase as more people take part in tournaments in the near future.

The next Fight Night tournament, this coming weekend, is the Rostock 2014 Fight Night, a 250 point event. The weekend following is the Berlin 2014 Fight Night, which this year will be a 500 or 750 point event.


The Art of Juggling – solo street show version premiere

I’m going to be performing at some street show festivals this year, so got out the old Art of Juggling gear and put together a solo version. It was a lot of fun! The old version had two people, me and Pola, with one person doing the juggling and the other person doing the painting. Now I had to learn both parts and fit them together in a way that makes sense, has a logical progression, and tells a story.

Here is a video of my first ever performance of the new act, performed in my own home at the Open Stage in the Living Room in May 2014.

The full street show will start with a 10 minute diabolo section, move on to the act as performed above, up until the knives come out. Then the music will stop and I’ll perform my standard rola bola knife juggling routine, which is another 10 minutes of comedy and audience participation, rather than just the trick as presented.

A higher quality video is available via YouTube, but it is blocked in many countries due to music rights issues.

And here is the original street show version featured me and Pola.
