Juventud - indoor juggled project (création 2020)

Will tomorrow’s youth manage to make its way through boredom to produce a creative act? An authentic act, one that would bang against the contemporary world, against the State –
machine, the politically correct and the veneration for the past ? JUVENTUD (Youth) presents itself as a physical manifesto in an ultra-modern society that has defined the limits of its freedoms in a mechanistic and administrative manner. A group of 6 jugglers state their refusal to be domesticated entities of the existing order, and use juggling tools as poetical instruments and revolutionary speech. The elements of their demonstration will arise from the meanings neutral objects used in juggling will take on in turn, when the love of speed and danger will express the creative urge.
Let us leave Wisdom behind like a hideous coating and let us enter, like fruits spiced with pride, into the wind’s immense and twisted mouth !... Let us feed one another with the unknown, not out of despair, but simply to enrich the unfathomable reservoirs of the Absurd. (Manifesto of Futurism, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, 1909)
