~*~ 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

woooo! lexy's coming!

me and rhys will be there with bells on, you know it. and i think i'll attend brenn's yoga workshops.

can we not have ice on the tents this year though? that was kinda not very nice. mind you, we'll hopefully have some better camping gear this year... and a much bigger dog to keep me warm. and he's too big for the hippies to steal him now.

Thanks for that Katinca, I support that policy/idea completely.

Foxy's dog that she bought last year was a tiny cutie.. but my experience with festivals is that eventually, allowing dogs leads to trouble. Twice now (!) people have been mauled at Exodus by fighting dogs who are confused and off their territory. Lady dogs get on heat, one person's 'cute' dog is another person's oh no.... not again...

I was just about to PM you guys to see when this was happening, didn't realize there was already a thread!

Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film
