Posted:Hello, hello and welcome to the all-new, shiny thread for fire dancers, spinners, object manipulators, drummers, musicians and anyone else interested in these arts anywhere in Ireland.



Our community started coming together a few years ago, and it's grown to include people from all over the country...



If you are new to poi or staff or spinning stuff and want to meet up with any of the Irish spinners, please post in this thread, introduce yourself and feel free to come along to the workshops, gatherings or events that get talked about.



Also, if you'd like to be on my mailing list for fire gatherings and other juggling events, please PM me your email address and I'll add it. The fire gathering takes place fortnightly in Belfast, but it's one way to keep in touch with everyone.



So welcome, and hope to see you soon wave

Posted:Wow. A new thread. This is going to take some getting used to. I'll put the kettle on for us, and wait for everyone else to arrive.

Good plan putting all the meets info in the first post by the way smile Maybe it should be added to the first post in the "welcome to Ireland" thread in the meet others forum - and a link to here, because no-one really looks there anyway...

Durbs, as I've already explained to Clare, I'm horribly busy on Thursday, but will be around on Saturday and Sunday evening when i finish work for spinning/drinking, so let me know if you're at a loose end.

Will endeavour not to lurk quite as much as with previous Irish dancing thread (twas commented on at the last Dublin Convention... imagine that!)

Great idea starting a new thread though, old one was getting a little unwieldy... also a quick note to remind folks that before heading to Goldsmith Hall on Tuesdays, they should check Trinity's calendar as Goldsmith Hall is only on during term time - so next session is the start of April when the undergrads return from holidays.

There's alot of poi spinners called Clare huh? or in some cases its spelt "Claire"

I've seen a few people setting themselves up on Grafton Street, seems to be the place to be if you wanna busk.
It's been taken over by those people who stand as still as statues. (I like the Angel girl, she's pretty!)
We need to increase the number of jugglers and spinners on grafton street!! ubblol

Fire busking's pretty rubbish in Dublin Durbin...

You need drummers, and fire safeties and pretty girls for the hat... otherwise the police assume you're a crusty juggler and move you on fairly fast.

But I dunno... it's been a while for me, so maybe's it all changed...

Posted:Not sure what the implications of a High Court ruling that section 3 of the 1847 Vagrancy (Ireland) Act is unconstitutional will have on the Guards policy of frowning upon busking, especially passing the hat ... may be worth while investigating this (any volunteers?)

Slightly more details for anyone interested:
Section 3 of the Act made begging in a public place an offence and provided for a sentence of up to three months on conviction on that charge. Apparently the ruling stated that the law interfered with a person's right to freedom of expression and his right to communicate.
The legislation was struck down.

Posted:I'm surprised there isn't more Artsy people busking around Temple Bar...I'd say you'd attract loads of attention around there if you were spinning fire and such. It's also easier to get a good space to spin, Grafton Street is always packed, could be quite dangerous.
Tho I suppose Grafton Street is the place for street artists really, always has been smile

Posted:We were in Temple bar lots... and that was grand, for a while...

But then meetings there started to get a bit careless and random and the Temple Bar authorities asked for it to be stopped...

Ask Helen of Poi... she had to deal with them when getting permission for last year's DJC fire show.

hi guys,

I've just been on to mcp and co. about this big meet down the country and there's a votary system being put in place over when it should be... first or second week in june confused2



So let me know what suits you all before next week (if you have no preference, or don't care in the slghtest about it one way or the other (the same thing really) then "reserve thy censure" as they say...



Any help from you guys with friendly musician types, spinny/juggly/nice people, and or D.Js who are only waiting for the opportunity to meet up with a bunch of heads in a field by the woods on the edge of an organic farm for the weekend and celebrate the facets of the great dance in which they find their feet then let them know, let me know, let the world know...and we'll sort something out

*all are welcome*

clap



Clare , could you check your mail, thanks

Barry, that MP3 player is mine, methinks i heard rumour it was lurking in your flat...

Ronan, i'm working next weekend, come up earlier, or later

Track of the day:

I reccomend "Telefon Tel Aviv: 8 track project cut" from the "Immediate Action EP" enjoy



bye

UberParis is on from June 15th - 17th, so probably best not to clash with that...

About the Temple Bar thing - the squares in Temple Bar are basically private property, controlled by Temple Bar Cultural Trust. Therefore they have the power to decide whether or not you can be there. Last year they gave us the use of Meeting House Square for the DJC fireshow, as we provided them with an insurance certificate, safety plan etc.

This year we asked for the same again. Unfortunately they were not happy because fuel had made the ground slippery last year, so they did not want the DJC back. In the end though, the decision was made (not by me) to hold the DJC fireshow in their other square, Temple Bar Square. Without arranging permissions, insurance etc.

I think it's fairly safe to assume that Temple Bar Cultural Trust will not have been very happy about this, and that it is unlikely that they will be particularly welcoming to the DJC or to fire performers in future.

Grafton Street is still the best bet for busking in Dublin, although you do have to get a good spot, where the street is quite wide as it can get pretty congested. The guards will usually not bother you if you have safety stuff e.g. fire blanket visible, are not drinking or drunk, and if the ground is not getting slippery. Basically, if you look like you know what you are doing, you will usually be fine.

i've recently been wondering about Smithfield as a potential busking spot - the space is certainly there. Does anyone know if there is enough foot traffic for it to be worthwhile?

Hmm, this post turned out to be very long... rolleyes
