Gregor Kiock is the teacher of Object Manipulation at Codarts Circus Arts. We talk about his methodology and philosophy of teaching, about copying and emulating, and the classical approach of finding a neutral grey. In between we jump up and down history and talk about the various people Gregor met in his juggling life.
