LORQ:TECH #47: ~Tether and Throws Flow~

10 Apr

This is the best 2 poi I’ve caught on film so far.
Music: “Oakland Rope” by Claude VonStroke ft. Fox & Py

In addition to lots of gunsling wrist-wraps, continuous arm rolls, throws,
and all that stuff combined, you get:

0:00- Tether manip on top petal of 2-Petal Vertical Prospin (Underhand)
0:23- Tether manip on top petal of 2-Petal Vertical Prospin (Overhand)
0:46- Gunsling wrist-wraps to Together-time Same-direction 1-Petal Inspin (Petal pointing left)
1:06- Gunsling wrist-wrap vs. continuous contact roll
2:55- 4-Petal Diamond Antispin throw (over top, extension at bottom) vs. 2-Petal Horizontal Prospin.
3:01- 4-Petal Diamond Antispin vs. no-beat toss
4:48- gunsling wrist-wrap (2 versions) vs. 2-beat reels (underneath shoulder and above shoulder).

Did I mention Slow-Motion!

Woot!

Wall Plane Shapes in Tech Tiles :)

1 Nov

Look at the tiles as if viewing the human body from the back of the stage (looking out at an audience), or as if looking at the back of a teacher at a workshop.

Each tile represents a quarter of a rotation of the hands, either from the left/right axis to the up/down axis or vice versa.

Tiles are read from left to right (and can continue again on the left side of the same row).

Prop movement is read from opaque to bold and from black to white.

Right side of body is Blue

Left side of body is Pink

In these shapes,  the prop is either pointing in (toward the shoulder) or pointing out (away from the heart) as the hand  rotates and passes the up/down or left/right axis.

On each page the:

Top Row–  Shows the right hand moving clockwise and the torso staying facing toward the audience.

Second Row–  Shows the right hand moving counter-clockwise and the torso turning from front to right front to left to…

Third Row–  Shows the left hand moving clockwise and the torso turning in a circle to the right.

Bottom Row–  Shows the left hand moving counter-clockwise and the torso tuning in a circle to the left.

All of these prop paths (left and right hand both moving clockwise and counter-clockwise) can be performed in any of the 4 “body paths” shown.  Once you get a good idea of what is happening, combine them in your mind!

EXT- Extension: Prop Out on Up/Down, Prop Out on Left/Right… 1:1 Prop:Hand ratio.Image

ISO- Isolation: Prop In at Up/Down, Prop In at Left/Right… 1:1 Prop:Hand ratio..Image

4BA- 4-Petal Box Antispin: Prop In at Up/Down  and Prop In at Left/Right… 3:1 Prop:Hand ratio.Image

2HA- 2-Petal Horizontal Antispin: Prop In at Up/Down and Prop Out at Left/Right… 1:1 Prop:Hand ratio.Image

2VP- 2-Petal Vertical Prospin: Prop In at Up/Down and Prop Out at Left/Right… 3:1 Prop:Hand ratio.Image

2VA- 2-Petal Vertical Antispin: Prop Out at Up/Down, Prop In at Left/Right… 1:1 Prop:Hand ratio.Image

2HP- 2-Petal Horizontal Prospin:  Prop Out at Up/Down, Prop In at Left/Right… 3:1 Prop:Hand ratio.Image

Many More to come.  Thank you for your interest 🙂
