The 2020 Show Lineup

- Neta Oren & Gon Fernandez








Compagnie Stoptoi (featuring jugglers Neta Oren and Gon Fernandez)
They are a french-spanish-israeli company who combine stunning ball and ring juggling with energetic percussion. They describe their show as "juggling concert & rock'n'roll". This is a must-see of innovative juggling.
Find out more about their work here:

- Jorge Vilchis

Coming to you with some fresh club juggling and manipulation is Jorge Vilchis from Mexico!
Jorge is one of the most influential and important jugglers in Latin America today as both a performer and a teacher.
He is creating a custom video that will have its world-premiere at Portland Juggling Festival and will feature his special brand of club juggling.


- Poki McCorkle

Matthew "Poki" McCorkle creates mesmerizing and surreal spectacles. Their unique acts have been presented around the world including: Europe's finest dinner varietè shows in Vienna, Berlin, Nürnberg & Hamburg, Stuttgart with Palazzo, for the Sheikh of Sharjah in Dubai with Cirque Éloize, and Palestine West Bank with Clowns Without Borders. But, this was all pre-COVID--nowadays Poki is hunkered down in an old travel trailer just south of Bellingham WA, growing a beard, and making a small ruckus.


- Guillaume Martinet

Guillaume is a ball juggler and performer from France and cofounder of the Compagnie Defracto. He won the special prize of the jury of Festival mondial du Cirque de demain in 2009 with a solo creation, “Cinétique TOC”. 

In 2014, the video project “Digink” corealized with Eloi Prieur won the Premier prix of Festival international de Jonglerie en Image.

The Portland Jugglers meet every Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Reed College Sports Center. It is free and open to the public. All kinds of juggling, object manipulation, and circus skills are welcome. People are always available to help get you started or learn a new trick.

The Reed College Sports Center (map) is located off SE 28th Ave. between Woodstock Blvd. and Steele St. Enter through the door on the southwest corner of the building. During the summer, when the weather is nice, we are on the west side of the Performing Arts Building; otherwise we meet in the adjacent Sports Center.

Reed College began offering juggling as a PE class in 1979, and it was open to the public who frequently brought new skills to the college class. The public component grew into the Portland Jugglers, and we continue to meet weekly concurrent with the college class. We are grateful to Reed College for helping foster Portland's vibrant juggling community.
