Posted:~*~ COMMON GROUND 2007 TEASER ~*~



!!!!!!!!!*********COMMON GROUND SITE IS UPDATED*********!!!!!!!!!!!!

www.common-ground.net

we will be updating it progressively as we confirm / think of stuff closer to the date.



------------------



Greetings to all you fine, dandy, spangley and sparkly people!!



Just putting the word out..

Common Ground is an Annual object manipulation and lifestyle meeting held from Friday the 5th of October to Monday the 8th of October. It's aimed specifically at people who want to relax, have fun, share and learn in a positive and supportive environment.



Set in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, the location has ample room for camping, workshops and more.



Mainly focussing on (but by no means limited to) Twirling, Dance, Music and Circus related skills. Workshops cover a very wide range of different interests and skill levels. From complete novice to professional performer, we think we have something for you.

Core to the concept is participation. The event is created by those who attend sharing their skills and experiences with others - to borrow a phrase thrown around at Burning Man:



"No Spectators, only Participants."



Although, if doing every workshop isnt you style - just chill out and contribute to the relaxed, happy atmosphere.



Confirmed Dates:



Friday 5th October

Saturday 6th October

Sunday 7th October

Monday 8th October



The dates are a week later this year giving the crew time to be completely set up and running by the time people arrive Friday morning.



Friday arrive anytime, gates will be open at 8am. Workshops start in the afternoon.



Saturday **Show**



Sunday TBA



Monday workshops and offsite by after lunch.



We have already had some reservations on workshops these include:



Yoga

Drumming

Learn how to DJ

Yogaeria



TICKETS Limited to 150!! And yes they will sell out!



Early bird - $30 booking before August 31st

Just missed the worm - $40 September 1st October 4th

Missed the boat - $50 on the door if there are any remaining - there weren't last year



Please email if you would like an EB ticket go on be the first you know you want too!



IDEAS: for workshops and contributions most welcome.



As in 2005 and 2006 there will always be smiles, fun, madness, music, dancing and laughing.



Stay tuned for future updates.



Cheers,

Kate and the Common Ground Crew

drumming as backing for the show will depend largely on the drummers that show up - I wont be pushing for it this year however, it needs to be something that flows, and will only occur if there is a cohesive drum crew smile

PS - mp3 vs cd vs vinyl is an argument best left to the appropriate forum(s) hey Biggins tongue

I think I've seen that one about a billion times (no really!) on

Posted:I was thinking that this year we could have a DIY workshop schedule- ie we set up the spaces, and CG provides the teachers. I think we have enough people coming that will be able to offer something interesting, skillful or just plain whacky to learn, that we will be able to simply put up a chalk board and have people put up their workshops. A bit like Confest.

how does this sound?

Posted:ok... then... what exactly will i be teaching?

i think this year instead of having 'advanced poi' and 'beginers poi' we should have a few different workshops like have a 'poi flowers workshop', 'atomics workshop', 'inversions workshop' 'get down and jammin with socks and balls workshop' *shrugs* think it will work better that way... dont look at me for taking throws or tangels workshop though.... maybe i should run a dance like shiva workshop... happy to do a handstand, 360 handstand and butterfly kicks workshop but have a stress that if i give wrong instruction for how you should hold yourself or someone is dumb I'll be in trouble... also happy to share some contact staffness...

Posted:true... im thinking that i would try and aim most of my workshops so every one can do them... like butterfly stuff can range from butterfly to that werid butterfly isolated inversion that pete and i do.... i got the idea to run workshops that way after matts inversions workshop which i thought worked really well... i know flowers can be taught like that quite well and also my under the leg stuff... maybe your right though maybe we need the uber beginerclass...

i think this is a good idea fo sho!! maybe you can schedule the beginners stuff at the start of the weekend and gradually make em harder?? give new ppl a chance to learn stuff and then maybe progress to some more advanced stuff??

Posted:hey can i commission someone make me a contact staff for CG?
I feel bad that i gotta steal people's gear everytime there's a contact staff workshop.

also, i think we need a colour photo of contact chris on a stick, so that he can attend this year's CG in spirit. loved watchin that guy do his fire magick the most!

Posted:thanks for the clarification, Josh. I totally concur with the importance placed on keeping a lush atmosphere at CG (My post was primarily a reation to feeling badly for Jon, admittedly he did leave a playlist running as opposed to DJing...)

i loooooove psy and prog and perhaps i was being too conscious of other people who might not live and breathe doof every weekday and all weekend smile I bought several kilos of psy and prog last time have some fun lined up - I'm grateful for every second i get to share the music i love with people playing with the art i love!
I've been loading up on crossover world music: bhangra/d'n'b, psychedlic dub, french reggae and other slower happy daytime stuff.

if anyone can't be bothered burning 90 CDs at only MP3 quality to play at CG, i have a Traktor set up on my laptop instead... 4.57 GB of Mp3s on a DVD will can easily get beatmatched with FX and filters....

i like the idea of confest style workshop boards - so much spontaneous majick happens at large gatherings of talent, and a flexible workshop structure would be a great enabler of such spontaneity.

on the topic of chais... more is more!!!
i would pay to have enough - if we can get a big urn to use, it would be swell.

Posted:Well even though I would clearly put my self in the eat,drink and live doof - I also concur that it is great to have other music types and look forward to hearing some of you guy-z fav tunes biggrin

I love the world music, bungra beats and Bender that French Reggae sounds alsome.... Really dig tunes in different languages.

- anyway back to the main question....

Should we *just* have an open blackboard (you can write on it first thing Friday morning) with Workshops or would you like a few scheduled workshops in there so people can plan the days and times they really need to be there for?

However, I will stresss.....that there will defiantly be a few times where we will require everyone together - eg. show planning, preparation etc....
