Around the world, people have been throwing and catching objects for millennia, as a form of play, ritual, and entertainment.
Cirque du Soleil alumni and internationally renowned juggler Thom Wall takes readers on an exciting journey through the history of juggling across time and cultures. Academic in its approach without sacrificing readability, „Juggling – From Antiquity to the Middle Ages: the forgotten history of throwing and catching“ is a detailed tour from its earliest traces in Ancient Egypt to fairgrounds in medieval Russia.
Crossing genres of anthropology, history, and the niche field of “circademia,” Wall has created a unique treatise, resulting in a gripping read for circus professionals and laypersons alike.
