LORQ:FLOW #8: ~Club-Spinning (Wind-Blown Flow)

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGC0zDsMnks&w=560&h=315]

Shot this video at Owen Rose Garden in Eugene. Erika’s mom was in town so we went to smell the roses!

The Clubs are a style I found at Fire Drums and IgNight, combining lots of stuff into a dance and mime “Wind-Blown” image.

LORQ:TECH #33: ~Tribute to Contact Juggling.Org~

I learned to contact juggle from Contact Juggling.Org back in 2001. I’ve picked up lots of other props and dance since then, and want to give back to the community that taught me so much.

LORQ:TECH #30: ~Toroid Flowers: Antibend C.A.P.’s~

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpAimYROhfM&w=420&h=315]

Here’s another (the 3rd) video I’ve produced on Toroid Flowers.

Here we use pendulum-like hands/arms, with the poi doing Antibend patterns. For me it’s useful to find whole patterns… I can focus on doing a smaller, easier motion and then extend that pendulm CAP-like thing to a whole pattern.

LORQ:TECH #29: ~TOROIDS- Hybrids and Hella Antibend

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24F6CFNiHpk&w=420&h=315]

Learning Toroids from Alex Powell and Ben Drexler, I’ve discovered patterns akin to Vulcan Tech Gospel #2 (David Cantor and Noel Yee). . .

LORQ:TECH #27: ~Helical Patterns~

This is a manipulation of information from Vulcan Tech Gospel #2 (see noelyee.com and his youtube, under Noel Yee).

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR3pV8Y2C-8&w=420&h=315]

I begin doing the patterns in wall plane and then bend my spine backward so that wall plane becomes floor plane.  I’m pretty much doing wall plane flowers and a backbend.  Then I keep the poi moving in floor plane and begin to move my hands in wall plane.  This creates a helical shape with the poi.  The poi points either OUT or IN toward the heart on one axis, and on the other it will be pointing perpendicular to the arm (L hand/prop relationsip).  You can stall in those L’s as well!  Super dope!

LORQ:TECH #22: ~2-Beat Spiral Isolations (Spiral-Linear/Fo8 Hand Path)~

Alien Jon has offered an alternative to “spiral hand path” which would be “helical hand path”… also, this motion can be done with the poi leading the hand rather than the hand leading the poi, by “flicking the poi in front of the hand.
