Craig Quat is the founder of QUAT PROPS and inventor of the Juggle Board. He researches alternative understandings of juggling and explores new ways of expanding the accessibility of juggling through creation of innovative adaptive equipment. Quat’s work not only challenges the traditional conventions of juggling, but also the social perceptions of disabilities.
Quat is originally from New Jersey, but now lives and works in Cardiff, Wales, where he develops new types of juggling props specifically designed for people with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges. Many of these props will be demonstrated for the first time in the United States at the 2017 Folklife Festival.
