Posted:so ive searched through the archives and not found much just a couple of threads about juggling multistaff. having watched kyle do some insane stuff ive had a bit of a play and was wondering what multistaff things people are playing with if anything at all.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:Yeah yeah yeah. (God, I thought that was *implied*!) wink

What I actually meant was: horizontal devilstick propellor, steve, horizontal devilstick propellor.

But the traps one is worth a laugh too, it's just a bit harder, cos traps are tricky...

Posted:When you know how wink
As for playage with more sticks, there is tons out there. There is the juggle approach with x sticks, a more contact based approach with x sticks, and also countless ways for the body to hold x sticks in a static position, which can be combined with both.
Look forwards to seeing people passing silly numbers of staffs through the air and or surfing thier bodies.
I often get comments poping up when I start doing triples contact but I am very messy and very much learning this stuff still. I think it is important to be bold in playing and allow your body to attempt things that you have not learnt yet. For me this element of unkown adds a thrill to the dance and can have a sequnce of tension and release not unlike a nice jazz line. Or maybe I'm just a tripper confused
Just thought I would mention that because when I play multis I am often well out of control, but often still comfortable. It seems to be more a way of coming at it then a particular trick or style.
So no text decriptions footinmouth
BUT, a vid is in the makinggrouphug
Love & Stuff,
Kyle


Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

Posted:Im thinking all the two stick moves with the third stick as high throw must be possible- and some day I'll actually trust myself to put this into practice. I'm also thinking a lot of club juggling patterns should also go with three staffs- though juggling with clubs is a hell of a lot easier!

Posted:I'm bringing this thread up, as it should be THE multistaves thread

it's been a while since I'm supposed to post this, but I was away from Paris, lazy, and swamped with other things.
I wanted to further edit it before posting, but I couldn't find the time for it. And as I'm leaving tomorrow for one month in India, I'd better post this like it was previously edited (sketchy), rather than in late september

A VIDEO IS BETTER THAN A LONG TEXT ubbidea

with the " triple-cross " you can do virtually the same thing as with double staff
I've also tried the trick with 4 staves and ended up with what I called dual-plane isolation :
having two staves isolated and the two others spinning a standard pattern in a different plane

I've been improving this since the video was shot (june), and presented it in some Italian conventions gala .. but so far no firey video yet
I'll do my best to shot this, on fire, in Rajastan biggrin ubbrollsmile
If you comment, don't expect much response from me before I'm back from India, mid-sept.

ps>I sent it, before posting it, to some random dudes. I've forgotten half of my mates redface. So sorry for the ones that heard about it but didn't get it at the time ( Nate wink )
ps2> I'll be at Bristol JC

Happy antispinning to all weavesmiley

Posted:Been practicing my staff on staff action using 2 sticks. just like a devil stick spinning one staff around the other... ubblol
and balancing 1 staff on the other in a cross and spinning them both only holding the bottom staff.


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
