Posted:Greetings to all
Having somehow managed to elude JetLag - it is now full power ahead towards Avebury for Solstice and then naturally on to Glastonbury for the Festy.
We are performing 2 shows per day - One in the Circus Big Top (7 mins - high skill, coreography - Poi, Juggling, Double Staff) and the Outdoor Fire Stage (30 mins Comedy Circus Street Theatre show - Bike tricks/Balance, Acro, Fire Poi, Staff, Clubs, Whips - yep all fire).
So have a look out for timings in the programme at those to locations and names and come be entertained.
Otherwise hope to see some of you around!! - Look out for the orange or Red/Black clad Dread Poi/Staff/clubs/whip man!!
Enjoy peeps ubbloco

Posted:i was well annoyed as well cos all they showed was fireworks on sticks which whited out the camera and obscured the people. good for moppers but by no means a good representation of the skills that were there... i'd got all excited about that too... rolleyes

so for those who actually performed/watched live, how was it? umm

Strugz and Brad and Frodo (if I remember correctly) made up some poi that had this effect at Falmouth 2 by putting sparklers in with the wire wool.

Posted:I remember it well smile But these seemed bigger and brighter - nearly as much as a flare or firework would.

The lack of hattage and sleevage on this clip concerned me though eek

Posted:So is Glastonbury going to be on next year (2006), myself and my boyfriend are going to be in the UK and we REALLY REALLY want to go but I have heard rumours that they are taking a rest next year...*pouts*

Not that it matters cause we will be in the UK for two years but still it would be good to go the first year we are there and the second year!

Posted:HI peeps or HOPs
No - That was another troupe Cirque Bijou who were on before us on in the BIG top
Are Fire/Dance stage show was alot more comedy/street theatre orientated. Quite unlike Cozmic Flame shows although our Big Top shows were similar.
Thanks to all those Hop-ers who came along - finally got to meet (very briefly Gayle) and.....not too many others - as ususal!! Its quite hard to get motivated to come and spin Fire when youve had to stay straight all day to do a show at midnight!!! - Hopefully i'll see many of you at InFire(next weekend), Guilford(Wknd after), Play, Falmouth or around.
Ill post our schedule when its finalised.
Hope you all ahd a great time - I certainly did.
Have a great summer
