Juggling as an art form has been evolving constantly, with every generation comes a different focus to the realm of object Manipulation. However, when we decide to perform and share our joy for juggling to others, there seem to certain principles that become constant or universal, transcending all generations. They can be known as the universal aesthetics of juggling.

This Masterclass taught by Viktor Kee, is a rare opportunity to enter into the world of juggling aesthetics, trick transitions, and business management as understood by this great performer.

Viktor Kee, a circus juggler, is best known for his fluid, elegant and physically integrated style of juggling. The act that he created in the mid 1990’s has remained an international success. It is still being performed on tour in Cirque du Soleil’s "Dralion". He is currently on tour with a new creation of his, "Amaluna". Viktor has received a Silver clown from Monte Carlo in 2003 as well as a gold medal in 1994 the Paris festival de Cirque du Demain.

The workshop is intended as a Masterclass for proficient jugglers who are looking to develop physical transitions between tricks, a more efficient practice structure, and a keener eye for trick analysis. The class will also explore character development and integration into juggling.

All proceeds from this Masterclass will go to the Viktor Kee foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote juggling and juggling culture for future generations to come. Projects include: future juggling and performance workshops, as well as assistance in publishing the Platinum edition of Karl-Heinz Ziethen’s book on the "Complete History of Juggling".
