Posted:just to say....:
we(te POOKa) are doing a 20 min fire show on the friday night at the britishjugglingconvention (in brighton, April 10-13)

we plan for the final five minutes to be a free play for all those who wish to join us(a la glastonbury if anyone recalls...).

however there are a few provisos.

1:we will be performing in front of the most critical crowd in the world(except maybe the ejc one ) so only perform if you feel you would be comfortable in front of between 500 and 2000 seriously obsessed object manipulators....

2:everyone MUST get a safety briefing from me or our safety officer. this is a requirement from festival oganisers and us too. if you don't get this(and unfortunately i will be checking) you won't get to play . with this in mind i will probably have a watch and talk to any i feel need to keep an eye out for others (no offence intended, but again we cannot do anythig deemed unsafe)

3: there is not an immense amount of space in the midst of our set. if i get inundated with replies i will have to find some fair way of sorting which i have not yet discovered. this will however mean some people might be disappointed. again i'm sorry about that in advance but there is nothing i can do if this happens.


ok. now i have thouroughly put anyone off joining up, let me go thru the best bits.

1: performing in front....(covered in point 1 above)
2: point 1 .
3: we would love to have as many as possible for this.


more info will be posted in this thread about the exact format of the show soon enough, but i must run off to bed cause i'm knackered after 6 hours rehearsal

g'night...

Rob

either me or glass(if you're in london or nearby) can be contacted about this, or just respond here......

Posted:i get the feeling that anyone who is up for this (and i know of at least 4 people in my car alone ) may have already done the real world conversation thing with yourself or drew?

must say i disagree mr josh i can distinctly remember some badass moves on your behalf and would be shocked and offended if you did not join us(you get the front row seat for the rest anyway )

love y'all

Posted:man, I get shaky in front 70 good object manipulators (witness my droppage at PIP), I cant imagine performing in front of hundreds (thousands?!?!)...I think I would end up dropping *all* my moves - and that would be a nightmare come true...

not meaning any offense, but I dont think I'm up to that kind of pressure...

Posted:none taken.... but i truly beleive you would only enhance any of our performances, and we'd be honoured if you could join us. tho if you really don't want to i won't push it(don't remember you dropping at all at pip tho )

soon

Posted:oh for crying out loud dudes!

I sincerely appreciate the comments (cept that stuff about burning my poi!!! ) Can we discuss it in person perhaps? I just got the time off today, and I know Kate told her work that either they give her the time or shes gonna quit. Love her dedication So we will both be there.

I'll be easier to convince once I'm there, but I dont want to work myself up...perhaps can I wait until we have been there for a day or so to see how I feel? Tis all ok for you seasoned performers!

I hope Josh will join , you flow like not many people flow, Josh , and i say that from a sole 2 minutes two years ago at the end of COL 1, so i can only hope you will be shining and dancing then with katinca cause it would be a great loss for all the jugglers there to not see that... i mean it ...

Did I say i love you guys ?
