*Pre-registration will close on the 1st of June* - you can register online or download the pre-reg form for your country and register through your local EJA rep



Update 19/03/07

Pre-reg prices now available on the official EJC 2007 website



I thought I'd start an EJC 2007 thread in the events forum.



juggle weavesmiley juggle



EJC 2007 will take place from July 30th to August 5th 2007 in the Helliniko Olympic Complex, Athens, Greece.



Their official website is now live, and will be updated regularly. Pre-registration is not yet open, but I will add info on that as soon as it is.



Curious about the site? It is the site of the old Athens airport, and has large air conditioned halls. It is also on the sea. These photos, courtesy of Toby and Phillip from the EJC 2008 Karlsruhe team may help.

Hope to see you all there hug

Yep, it's going to be hot. From experience at Burning Man though, i'd recommend covering your tent in reflective emergency blankets - the tin foil like things - because it keeps the sun out, and the tent cool. And kind of makes your tent look like a spaceship smile They're not expensive, and make a big difference.

The building is on the western edge of the site, which unfortunately means that finding morning shade from it isn't an option for campers!

Posted:Online pre-registration will soon be open, details and prices on the official website.

Adult: 20

Adult: 15
Children (16 and under): 10


Pre-registration through your local friendly country rep will open soon - fliers are currently being translated. UK people will be able to pre-reg through Ali at the BJC as far as I know.

Please pre-register. Really, please please pre-register.

If you don't pre-register, the convention organisers don't know how much money they have to make a better convention for you. Last year, EJC Millstreet's pre-registration was so low that it meant that we:

1. Cancelled a big top
2. Couldn't invite some artists who we wanted there
3. Couldn't afford to decorate the site, the hall, the fire area etc.
4. Couldn't afford an extra PA for random music around the site
5. Couldn't make costumes/banners etc for the parade, or a nice backdrop for the stage
6. Couldn't buy nice little thank you gifts for volunteers (we wanted to)
7. Had many many sleepless nights - at one stage it looked as if we would make a massive loss.

In the end, we could have done all of the above - but we didn't know that, because so few people pre-registered.

Hope to see you all there

hug

The Pre-registration deadline is June 1st* - save yourself some cash, and the organisers some headaches by pre-registering if you're going to Greece this year smile

And to see why, here's some more info from the Official EJC 2007 website

Artists
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Erik Aberg-Sweden

Erik is a full-time juggler living in Stockholm-Sweden. Having graduated from Stockholms Circus school he has spent a lot of time exploring new ways and patterns in his juggling techniques. He practises juggling and manipulation with clubs, rings, devil-sticks and other, less juggling oriented props. Erik finds it refreshing and stimulating to do many different disciplines. Show wise he has collaborated with Circo Aereo in Finland (with director Maksim Komaro), as well as Louisiana Circus and Circo Nouveaux. In 2006 he created his own company, and toured with Jay Gilligan and Marcus Monroe.

Alessi Emiliano - Argentina

Alessi Emiliano has been active in the juggling and circus field already from 1998. With participations in conventions and festivals in both Latin America and Europe, he has established his role in the scene. He has realized artistic juggling stops in many European countries, enhancing like this his artistic horizons in juggling, clowning and acrobatics through big collaborations with various other performers of the field. Following his collaborations with various circus schools in Argentina and Barcelona he now lives and works in Toulouse where he formed his own company in 2005. His grand wish is to devote himself to those passionate with juggling, object manipulation and corporal expression.

Marco Paoletti - Argentina

Marco Paoletti started out as a student at La Arena circus school in Argentina. From 2003 until today he has worked as a juggling teacher and has given workshops in various circus schools in both South America and Europe. He has presented various shows in local and international juggling conventions and now works and lives in Katakomben, Berlin. As a performer, his goal is to create an intimate atmosphere where he can manipulate objects for the pleasure and amusement of the audience. As a teacher, his goal is to transmit knowledge, emphasize the need for structure and instil in his students the importance of technique and hard work.

I'm not sure what the problem with the site is, but I'm sure they'll have it sorted soon. More info when I have it,
