Oli Pinchbeck

英国/ England
Oli started juggling 15 years ago, and it took him a long time to realise that all this was more than just a hobby. Training 3 to 5 balls alongside contact juggling, he lived in China between 2007 and 2010 studying taiji and qigong in Beijing at the Milun School of Traditional Kungfu.
He is passionate about interaction, improvisation, group work and dancing. His workshop series at Dali Flow Festival will cover a variety of aspects that he considers fundamental to multiperson practice, mainly focussed on having fun.

一切都始于阴时刻……

在这次演出中,我们会自相矛盾
我们将努力使隐形可见,
分享与外界发生的事情。
我们会让沉默产生共鸣
在不到一个小时的时间里分享永恒的味道。 身体会不断转动。 然而,有时,他们会静止。 在这个二重唱中,与杂耍的结合我们会是三个人。

探索阴阳

演出研究的出发点是阴阳提出的是生命的动态视角。

“阴阳将其分开从而收集又将其收集。
任何相反,必然是相对而又可逆的,都是为了团聚。
阴阳是不对称,然而即是平等和非对称的。
平等,因为它们之间没有等级,一个不是更大或低于另一个。 重要的是在不断的移动的时刻它们与每种方式的关系。他们的内在差异确保了他们交流的继续存在。
阴与阳,当他们彼此区别时;
阴或阳,当他们一个接一个地交替。”

引用 Jean-Marc Kespi,法国针灸协会名誉主席

互补关系
我们的杂耍,身体和思想都是建立在10年的个人实践基础之上的。
在这二人组合中,我们的杂耍练习是相似的,但是,我们的关系是基于我们的差异。 通过互补关系,我们寻求通过彼此自身的优势协同支持对方。
“它之间的和谐很容易,差异之间的和谐是肥沃的。”

双人组合的第三名成员

阴阳是一个动态的原则。 阴阳与能量有关。 所以,阴阳既不是一个也不是两个,它是三个。 我们是三人组,第三名成员是杂耍。

接触杂耍,阴练习

要让球在身体上滚动,需要持续的意识。 不可能强迫球的轨迹,人们只能改变它的能量。 当它慢慢地滚动时,人们可以感受并分享与物体的连接,触感的柔软

旋转,开发独特的杂耍

玩杂耍就是通过使用重力来连接物体。 当我们旋转时,会出现一股新力,一股离心力。 通过使用它,我们开发了一种独特的杂耍风格,其中物体向外投射。 没有前,后,左,右。 只有轴。 和投影。
旋转允许观众有机会获得可能看不见的视角,例如身体的背部或轮廓。 此外,他们可以以动态的方式体验它,感知从隐形到可见,消失和再现的转变。

在循环中杂耍

物件的技巧和模式是用于思考和发展杂耍的传统元素。
在以太极拳为基础的练习中,我们使用非常精确的动作循环,整合了物体,呼吸和整个身体。 通过转换和交织这些循环,我们创造了我们的杂耍。

两者之间的杂耍

传递或将物体互相投掷的方式是一种经典的杂耍技巧。 在我们的实践中,我们通过对象交换能量。 和推手«Push Hands»,双人太极拳练习一样,我们有兴趣给予和接受。 特别是我们专注于逆转的时刻,当给予接受时,反之亦然。

顶部与底部

我们穿裙子。 除了一件服装,土耳其旋转舞裙是我们的合作伙伴和杂耍物品。 苦行僧(即转舞的舞者)的裙子在旋转过程中产生丝绸波浪。 此外,它们隐藏着,给下面的行走动态带来了一个神秘的方面,并在上面的杂耍中添加了流动性元素。

分享我们的经验

凭借50多个工作坊的经验,Van-Kim负责管理与演出相关的外展项目。 我们的工作坊和表演适合所有人,业余爱好者和专业人士。 对我们的组合来说,分享在舞蹈和杂耍方面的经验非常重要。 我们建议每个人参与我们的创作过程,与身体,对象和想象的替代关系。

Cie les invendus

Guillaume Cachera & Nicolas Paumier

France/ 法国

Created in 2016, the company is the fruit of a long collaboration.

Their friendship, enriched by many trips abroad, where they shared and developed their common passion: Juggling!

They have created various shows of short and long forms in France, Europe and South America.

To this relational dynamic has been added the will to improve and deepen their knowledge, both technical and theoretical, through professional training. These multiple experiences now nourish their work, their desire for expression.

A springtime creation and a summer tour allowed them to confirm their technical language:  “juggled movement”.

Through this two-person work and the questioning essential to its evolution, they question the human relationship: the other as an indispensable partner for self-realization.

Today, they do not need to talk to understand each other anymore! This duo is an obvious and they wish more than anything to share with their audience moments of humor, bearers of sense and generators of emotions.

Very early, Thomas was interested by movement and he looked for links between juggling, dance and other arts to nourish his practice.
Thus, he developped a personal style, mixing juggling, dance and body shapes. Through this choreographic and expressive approach, he consideres juggling as continuation of the body and as a language with rythmic and harmonic variations.
