uberevents.org

much smiliness at ubercentral biggrin



here is the general info:




Non-Https Image Link




General Info

It starts at 1pm on Friday the 15th June, and finishes at 8pm on Sunday 17th June.

It's at the Gymnase DUPLEIX, place Dupleix, 28 rue Edgar FAURE, 75015 Paris.

It's being hosted by the amazing Burn Crew Concept.

Its going to be slightly different to UberEurope: there will only be workshops and shows (and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, but not other meals) at the venue: we decided that it was better to have people coming to the venue JUST for the workshops, not staying there as well. This means better focus = better workshops = a better event. Yippeeeee.



Teachers

The following UberTeachers will be providing workshops for this event:



Meast (BCC)

Jay (Fire Fantasy)

Steph (Fire Fantasy)

Olive (Paris)

Dave Knox (Flame Oz)

Ronan (Ireland)

Ros (JAM)

Rob (Uber, JAM)

Meg (MCP)



Click here to find out just what they'll be teaching you (info will be constantly updated).



Tickets

There is a limited number of tickets, and there are 4 price levels:



Early Bird (first 20, or until April 1st, whichever comes first) - 65Euros

Professional Performer (limited to 20) - 65 Euros

Full Price (advance) - 75 Euros

Full Price (on door) - 80 Euros



To book, please fill out the booking form, and you will be contacted with details of payment.



Accommodation

Unfortunately we were unable to arrange accommodation at the venue this time. So this is what we're doing: If you can find a place to stay in Paris, please do. If you can't find somewhere to stay please mark YES in the 'Accommodation Required' box on the booking form. We will then put you in touch with an obliging host, however spaces are limited so do please try to find somewhere to stay beforehand.



Travel

Here is a map showing the approximate location. We will update it with a more accurate one including details of buses and metro routes.



From the UK:

Eurostar bookings are not available until the 14th of February for the 14th of June. I will be trying to arrange a promotional deal for those travelling, but am not yet sure of the minimum numbers needed. Eurostar is the quickest and most environmentally friendly way to get to the centre of Paris from the centre of London.



National Express have a return from 37 from London, if you are happy to be a little more squeezed.

If you are travelling by car/van from the UK, please do not travel alone: it is cheaper and again more environmentally friendly to share travel with others, not to mention more sociable! Speedferries currently have the cheapest channel crossing - 60 return fare for 4 people in a car, or 80 return for 3 or 4 people in a van.



From other countries:

I would like to fill up this section with cheap travel options from various countries. If you know the website for cheap, environmentally friendly travel in your country, please email me the details and I will add them on the website and here.



Austria]http://www.oebb.at/vip8/pv/en/Travel_within_Europe/Discount_products/]Austria



All travellers:

If you really must fly (here is a reason why you shouldn't), please at least offset the carbon you use, with climatecare.org. Thank you for helping to keep our world a better place.

incidentally, here's a list of the workshops we have so far. more to be added:


Olive's workshops

Staffs:
1) Crosses and multi-stickery
How to handle & transfer cross. How to shape geometry with more than 2 staffs
Multi staff & double-cross manipulation: application to dual-plane isolation (having two staffs isolated like with doubles and the two others spinning a standard doubles pattern) & crossers .. and maybe a few throws.

2) Doubles 1-beats
People usually forgot to use 1 beats which are easy to turn around and move with.
This workshop is here to cover that gap, and the different ways to grip a staff to make single beats: How to make continuous 1 beat spinning in wall-plane, side plane and practically everywhere. Application to crossers, walking on a line & further on to Nick's "circling circles"

Poi:
3) Hybrid & circling circles
Being able to do something totally different with right & left hand, and its application to Nick's "circling circles" & continuous warping/unwarping, and walking on a line.
Having one hand doing a different driving style to the other (where 'style' means pendulum, spin, giant, semi-isolated, isolated). This definition of hybridness implies/underlies poly-rhythm

Rob's workshops

1) Poi: Airwraps
Theory, placement, discussion, variety. This will also have some tangliness in it. Designed toward those who can already airwrap, but basic wraps will be taught.

2) Anything: The Workshop Workshop
A workshop in how to prepare for a workshop.
OR
Something else entirely, but non spinning based ;o)

Also, at some point over the weekend I will chair a discussion about the future of Uberevents.

Ronan's workshops

Poi:

1) Stretching circles
Moving circles in lines to create spin + antispin patterns.

2) Hybrids
Same and split time, switching which hand isolations, realising that hybrids can go anywhere you make an isolation. *These are different hybrids to those in Olives class - please ask on the forum for a direct response from the teachers*

3) Throws
To and from anywhere.

4) Antispin & spin + lines
Moving through patterns and direction. Changing to create new patterns, and less sense.

Ros' workshops

Anything:

1) Performance Games
Games and exercises designed to develop essential performance skills including timing, awareness, teamwork, anticipation and audience awareness. Will make you concentrate, focus, giggle, work together and balance things on your head.

2) Chance!
An fun way of developing sequences, finding new combinations and playing with unusual links between moves.

3) Routine Building
One of the most successful Uber-workshops, based on a concept by Manu Laude. Creating individual/group routines over a couple of hours by learning a basic set of movements and developing them with your own style. The workshop finishes with a show for all those not sensible enough to have done the workshop.

Meg's workshops

1) Double Staff: Contact Doubles.
Staff on Staff Contact style doubles. Teaching the fundamentals of this style, plus various other contact doubles patterns most of them very old school, some of them very difficult.

2) Single Staff: Making contact look better.
Discussing some theory of Contact Staff, and learning how much extra movement you can put in while still successfully completing the movement. Adding character to your tricks and working on good footwork.

3) Double Staff: Inside Planes.
Short staffs! Inside planes, inversions, horizontal, inside anti-spin and isolation, and other tomfoolery that you can only do with short doubles. (1.2m is my maximum length, 1m or less is good if you have short arms, or are short, or just want to make it all easier.)

4) Anything: learning theory.
How to learn more efficiently, easily, and with the best technique. This workshop will start with some obvious (to me) advice about how to make learning easier. It will cover more sutble and unobvious tips and then onto more specific techniques and ways to structure your practice. Then evolve into a sharing of techniques and question answering session. This is general advice and can be applied to any prop. (And it was all from different sources, some juggling, some spinning, some music etc.)

5) Video: Video making workshop.


Meast's workshops

Staff:

1) double staff antispin/isolation

2) contact staff

3) double contact staff



herrr....none is making staff passing WS?
oh no. confused

We're currently looking after people to accomodate others, but best bet is to look after your own accomodation. I think there are already some link on uberevents.org
