This table tells you what the jugglers do on every beat in one step. At the end of the table you see which role you a juggler has in the beginning of the next step.

In this table you can see which role you have at a given step. Write the names of you and your partners in the first column and read which role you take at the next, the previous or every other step.


In words:

  1. "cC": The manipulator carries a club to C.
  2. "sC": The manipulator substitutes a pass from A to C.
  3. "iB": The manipulator intercepts a pass from A to B, and becomes B by this. Former B is the new manipulator.

Tips:

  1. We find it much easier to start the pattern on count 2 and miss the c C in the first round
  2. Wolfgang (blue t-shirt) moves different on i B. Just choose your favourite style.
  3. The name "zig zag" comes from the movement of the manipulator does. It is also quite fast.
  4. The chopped version of zigzag is the nicer pattern and we´re going to do this one in our act. It´s just not that much zig zag, as you don´t run fore and back but carry the club in a chopabout style to the juggler behind you, and replace the pass on beat 2 with a chopstitute. An it has a beautiful twist moment in it.
