IJA Tricks of the Month by Facundo Guglielmone from Uruguay | Juggling Clubs

Hi! My name is Facundo Guglielmone, independent artist born in Salto City, Uruguay. I’m 24 years old, and it’s been seven years now since I started training and specializing in technical juggling.
Nowadays, I work at Circo Tranzat (the first contemporary arts company with a circus tent of their own in the country). This company has helped me develop my skills in many other scenic areas.
I truly enjoy juggling, and find myself in constant research inside this infinite playground. I have a theory that motivates my exploration, and the bases combines mainly these three topics: “Rhythm, Maths, and Gravity.”

This video was filmed in one of the many “abandoned” houses that exists in Uruguay. Finding this place reminded me and my team of the fact that there are lots of houses in these conditions around the world. Fortunately, many of these have been used by numerous artists, each leaving a new transforming print.

I edited the music for this video because I wanted it to have an original soundtrack.

I’m deeply thankful for all the people that have been part of my development throughout the years, helping me to grow, not only as an artist, but also as a person. I’m particularly thankful to my cousin, Bruno Guglielmone, who planted a juggler’s seed in me when I was 9 years old.
Thanks to Patricia Rijo and Enzo Scasso for being great team-partners through the whole process of this production.
Thanks to the IJA for this opportunity, inviting me to be part of this great community. I hope this helps as a motivation to many other jugglers!

Hola, soy Facundo Guglielmone, artista independiente y nacido en la ciudad de Salto/Uruguay. Tengo 24 años y hace 7 años que me especializo en la técnica de malabares. Actualmente trabajo en la compañía Circo Tranzat (Primer carpa de Circo Contemporáneo en Uruguay), la cual impulsó mucho en desarrollarme en otras áreas.

Disfruto mucho de malabarear y me encuentro en esa constante búsqueda sobre esta área infinita. Tengo una teoría, que es una combinación para impulsarme y seguir investigando sobre: Ritmo, Matemática y Gravedad.

Filmamos este video, en una de las tantas casas “abandonadas” que hay,  donde nos damos cuenta de cuántos lugares así tenemos en Uruguay y en el mundo, donde muchos artistas, pasan y dejan su huella.

La música la edité especialmente para este video, con el fin de tener un audio autentico.

Agradezco inmensamente a todas las personas que me impulsaron a desarrollarme como artista y por ende como persona. También a mi primo Bruno Guglielmone, que es, quien puso una semilla de malabar en mi a los 9 años. Gracias a Patricia Rijo y a Enzo Scasso por el gran trabajo de acompañarme, trabajar y estar al firme con esta grabación y edición.

Gracias a la I.J.A. por la oportunidad de unirme a esta inmensa comunidad y espero que sea de motivación este video para muchos y muchas malabaristas más!
