Interview and Video: Héctor Jiménez – “hipnopia”

With English translation by Ed

No estoy en ninguna comunidad, de echo he aprendido casi siempre solo , nunca etsuve en ninguna escuela ni en ningun circo , la escuela ha sido el viaje y la calle.

I am not part of a community, I have always practised alone, never in a school or circus, the only school I have attended is that of travel, and the street.

Para mi el contac es una expresion del movimiento interno, mucha gente ahora practica contac pero pocos veo que no copien o imiten a alguien que han visto, siento este malabar perfecto para desarrollar muy personalmente el movimiento de tu cuerpo

For me, Contact is an expression that comes from inside. Many people nowadays practice contact, but I have seen few that do not copy or imitate somebody they have seen, I feel that this perfect form of juggling should develop from one’s own body’s movements, from within.

La mejor pieza que he visto probablemente sea la de un aleman que me encontre en la convencion europea en Carvin pero lo siento no recuerdo su nombre ni su contacto, me impresiono su forma marcial de practicarlo y tenia trabajados equilibrios multiples de hasta 9 bolas …. un monstruo.

the Best that I have ever seen is probably a German that I met at EJC in Carvin, but I’m sorry I can’t remember his name or contact details. He impressed me with his martial form of practice and he had worked balancing up to nine balls… A monster! [Ed: We think Kelvin {edit}]

El futuro del contac es el cambio ,creo que hay que mutar , transformarlo y retorcerlo hasta que sea tan personal ,que sea otra disciplina diferente.

The future of Contact is in The Change. I believe it is to mutate, transform and twist it until it is very personal, almost a completely different discipline.

En los videos que se ven en You Tube , poniendo Hipnopia , estoy representando el papel de un viejoto indio que cuando termina su funcion en la vida , abandona todo lo material y se marcha caminando a encontrar la muerte , asi que cuando lo relizo me vienen imagenes , olores y recuerdos de personas de ese magico lugar…..

In the videos on youtube, I am representing the role of an old Indian Man, that when he has reached the end of his function in this life, abandons all things material and begins upon a journey to find Death. In this way, when I perform this act, it conjures up images, scents, and memories of people of this magical place…

Gracias de nuevo por darme animos , al apreciar mi trabajo , a seguir tranbajando, da gusto saber que la gente disfruta de lo que a uno le cuesta tanto esfuerzo, respeto al trabajo que hacemos porque creo es un arma poderosa para abrir los corazones del mundo.

Thanks again [to the Ministry] for giving me the encouragement, by appreciating my work, to continue working. It pleases me to know that people enjoy that which one has given a lot of energy, and respect for the work that we do because I believe that it is a powerful weapon to open the hearts of the world.

  1. Hey about that editorial comment. I’m pretty sure that was Calvin from Germany, not Mr. Om. I remember him balancing ridiculous amounts of balls on himself in the bar one night, looking like a christmas tree.

  2. I find this amazing, but i could not finde any contact information about him on internet, on your site it was a interview with him, but no contact information.

    i would be very happy if anyone could give me some information about him, or any one else that are representing a performance in that kinde of skils.
