The show is supported by The School of Engineering of Jönköping
University. Students from the Lighting design program at Jönköping
University will design the lighting.
These are a few of the artists participating in the show:
Viktor Gyllenberg and Peter Åberg
The idea to make a show based on a music album has been on Viktor
and Peter's minds for a long time. Initially the idea was quite
different from Roxette's "Look Sharp", but this gem from the eighties
finally made up the basis for this juggling show!
With creative modern juggling, high techincal skill, loud music,
and wild hair-styles, these performers provide you with the world
premiere of their new show "Look Sharp!"
Viktor and Peter attend the Contemporary Circus program in the
University College of Dance in Stockholm since the fall '05. Both
appear in Visionbot's new juggling flick 9-1 Nordic Objects. Viktor
previously performed in "Juggling Details" and performed an act from
that show during last year's Nordic Convention. Peter was also among
last year's acts, but at the time performing together with Jay
Gilligan in the show "Fighting Machines of North Hollywood".
Söderlund—A love story
When you are in love, everything effects you. Even your juggling
can change. See Pär's emotions turn into nicely flowing juggling
routines with funny gags and lovely role playing. Having his
dreamgirl in the right hand and the audience in his left Pär blows all
borders in usual juggling.
Except participating in the Public Show, Pontus is also going to have
a large number of workshops during the convention. Pontus is, among
other things, the creator and maintainer of www.juggling.se.
Ida and Nopa
Ida and Nopa from Cirkus Vana in Malmö have been juggling together
for several years. The routine they are going to perform att the
convention was created during a year att the Circomedia Circus
In their act, they have put emphasis on creating a relation between
the two caracters, and to give the audience a glimpse into their
world. They have performed the piece at many places, including the
Brittish Juggling Convention '04, the Scotish Juggling Convention '05,
and the Danish Juggling Convention '06.
At the moment they are putting together a street show for a summer
tour, and enjoy the spring whith their one-year-old daugther.
