For the finish of 2007 and the beginning of 2008 we'are working for a festival in Offida, Italy...

We will stay all together in a cottage and will been served breackfast, lounch and diner, (wine incluse!).

During the day will be worshops of juggling, spinning and cirus art in general.

The festival is not for money but to have good time together, for this reason the cost is very low, for the moment 10 euro a day, including food(and wine wink ), place to sleep (bagbead) and shows every night.

The red line of the event is fire and street art, that in italy is very present (street art, not fire... rolleyes )


this are the links for the festival, there are not pages in english but you can contact me for more information.

The Circular (Circo Lare) was born in 2005; it's founders, not actual members of the group, are (in inverse alphabetical order): Saliva (Elisa), Pratolina (Sonja) and Brododipollo (the Faustus).

As DonChisciotte novels turn from the public squares of Italy and to not only fight the sadness faced with many utopic dreams: that people do not always watch their own steps but watch and laugh in the face of life and, at least for some minutes, don't think of the problems from the daily paper but learn to laugh with sympathy at a small dog made with a balloon, or the fascination of a magical cut rope that is then repaired, of the beautiful elegance of an exercise of juggling and of the fact that, to the end, laughter in life is simpler.

The Circular (Circo Lare) is just marked, but we do not have problems to move at all.




So I made an English translation for non Italians..

I'm not going to do the rest of the site... as there isn't much on there other than what they do and a load of random nonsense.


Basically they are offering 5 days of workshops over the new year, including basic and advanced juggling, and other street art workshops..there should be good new years celebrations there as any where else in Italy.


The location is just a little south of Rimini, you'd have a choice of Airports: Pisa, Rimini, Ancona, Roma & Pescara.


Rimini would be the nearest of all, but there are train services.


If you plan to go to this then, remember... taxi's are extremely expensive and they will rip you off any where in Italy, cities especially.


Trains... reading the boards can be a little tricky, using the self ticketing machines are so much easier and multi lingual too. (stamp tickets with the yellow machines on platforms before boarding trains.. ).

Bus services are inexpensive too, ticket purchases can be made from news stands or at station information centres... tickets must be stamped when getting on board the bus.


Hey the price includes food and wine! 10 a day!!! Christ... This is even got me thinking about going... can't beat the food in Italy.. nor a nice Brunello Di Montelchino biggrin



Grazie per questo informazione, tanti auguri buona fortuna.
