Start: Sunday, November 19, 2023 4:00PM
End: Sunday, November 19, 2023 6:00PM

Based on a series of stories about gravity and stunning juggling sequences featuring Jay's unique inventions, props, and robots, REFLEX is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. Prior to the 4pm performance, Jay will host a unique juggling workshop. This class, designed for individuals of all skill levels, focuses on the art of composition in juggling. The workshop is tailored to all skill levels, even allowing for learning with just a single ball if you are a beginner. The class goes beyond just juggling, highlighting the importance of body movement, rhythm, timing, and object selection. Many of the insights can be transposed to other art forms in the circus as well as dance and physical movement in general.

The workshop starts at 1pm; registration is required at https://registrations.jccdet.org/masterclass-with-jay-gilligan. Tickets for the masterclass are $25.

Pricing for REFLEX ranges from $25-35. Tickets and seat selection are available online at https://tickets.jccdet.org/reflex or by texting the virtual box office at 248-406-6677.
