Why is there so little written about juggling?
I love reading articles/books, and juggling was & is one of the most important things in my life. Therefore I am very disappointed that there is so little to read..
There are history books, and now there are the history articles of David Cain, but not much else!
I enjoy listening to the interviews of Dan Holzman, but they don't go much into juggling itself. Kaskade doesn't exist anymore, and hardly contained much interesting text when it was there...
Actually the only interesting stuff about juggling today I've ever read was from Jay's book 5 catches. That, and now that I think of it also Luke Wilson's posts at Circus Geeks. And perhaps a few single articles here and there, like the ones from Thom Wall.
Why is there so little? Is it because it is so hard to translate the moving visual to text? Is it because of a lack of research? Are there just too few jugglers interested in reading/writing?
Part of me wants to fill this void, but there seems to be little I could write about. Of course I can supply the world with more interviews or festival/show reviews, but nobody is looking forward to that, right?
I want knowledge, insights, short cuts, understanding!
