Käpälin

wood & juggling

premiere June 2023

indoors & outdoors // without words

KÄPÄLIN (« by hand » in Finnish ) is a contemporary circus performance which fuses woodworking with the world of juggling. In the performance Jeromy Nuuk combines his two main professions as a furniture maker and circus artist. Using a wood lathe, Jeromy creates his own juggling balls from wood, whilst discovering that everything in the “workshop” can potentially be used to fuel his love of throwing things into the air (and catching them again).

This 50 minute solo performance will take place on a small circular wooden stage, surrounded by rustic work lights. From wooden logs to tools such as axes, chisels and power tools the piece will demonstrate how the wooden element and juggling act in an almost unexpected symbiotic nature. This gritty performance which encompasses the true essence of a worker’s blood, sweat and tears, is beautifully accompanied by musical compositions derived and inspired by wood.
