Throw Catch Collective
Throw Catch Collective features Byron Hutton, Joe Fisher and Richard Sullivan. The company tour nationally, in 2019 receiving a Green Room Award nomination for their production Jugg Life. Their latest creation, Escalate, has been supported by Melbourne Fringe & Circus Oz’s Springboard program and Creative Victoria.
Joe performs in Absinthe, a Spiegelworld Las Vegas production. He won the International Jugglers Association Oceania Competition in 2017, and was an invited guest at World Juggling Federation Las Vegas, Israeli Juggling Convention and Glastonbury Festival.
Byron has performed at the European Juggling Convention 2017 and is head juggling coach at the Flying Fruit Fly Circus. He has performed in a variety of settings from the Winner Best Circus Adelaide Fringe 2021, to a Samsung TVC and TV Gala.
Richard is a graduate of prestigious DOCH konstnärliga högskola. He has performed in NEON by Circus Oz, YUMMY, YUMMY DELUXE, WERK IT directed by Malia Walsh, and Lost Lands Festival.
In 2017 the collective met composer Samuel Kreusler. Sam has been commissioned by the University of Melbourne and this composition was selected for showcase at Accademia Dell’arte in Florence, Italy. Sam has also been commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne to compose for the 5x5x5 Memory project, and was selected for the newly virtual Sō Percussion Summer Institute at Princeton University, USA.
Throw Catch Collective now work with Sam to explore both the visual dynamic of music performance through gesture and theatricality, and juggling’s huge sonic potential and are creating a shared language that combines music and juggling. Ultimately, we aim to refine our dynamic group choreography to a level where the lines between juggler and musician are erased.
