An intimate evening of inanimate objects.

Objectify is a revealing snapshot of modern juggling. This new circus performance gives an overview of how far the art of juggling has evolved, capturing the zeitgeist from every corner of the globe. Small-scale manipulations bounce, throw, trap, roll, pinch, hit, balance, swing, and catch the three main juggling shapes: balls, rings, and clubs.

Jay Gilligan has performed in 23 different countries, touring solo work and collaborating with companies such as The Gandini Juggling Project, Cie Jérôme Thomas, Les 7 doigts de la main, Cirkus Cirkör and Cirque du Soleil. He is the head teacher of juggling at the Dans och Cirkushögskolan in Stockholm, Sweden.
