Posted:ust to sell it to more of you contact jugglers, according to www.playfestival.co.uk Intrika (That's Ana and Miss Frix) are going to be performing there... Don't know about anyone else, but when I watched their video, I thought "That's what Contact juggling is supposed to look like!" Here's the video: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jgu6UnLUyC0

If people are lucky, I'll give a few Ministry Workshops... Isolationism and Four Ball snakes are on my list for certain... any more requests if I do decide to teach? (If Drew is there, I might be a bit more inclined to teach... wink Not to mention of course the plethora of impromptu skill sharing sessions I'm looking forward to. Must persuade Colin as well. biggrin

Posted:smile Isolationism is a style of contact juggling using isolations with the ball, but using your body to extend the Illusion elsewhere...

It can get a bit weird... Which is why I like it so much. biggrin

Maybe I should bring a white coat and stethoscope..

Which means lots of playing, vegging, laughing at Ed, little sleep and more games of ping-pong than you can shake a really big spliff at.

I think i'm going to teach a whip catch workshop (only better than last years...), maybe others too...
Oh the freedom!

How much does a decent tent cost? I would like to know how much I'm gonna have to spend to go. Coz I really wanna go!

And it's in Wales so that's not that hard to get to! Yay! biggrin

Posted:Depends how decent you want it really. You can get some good tents at cheap prices from tesco direct. Sure they won't last as long as a good quality one but for the price you could probably just buy a new one.

Generally the more you pay the smaller and light they pack and the better the build quality is. Really cheap tents are often single skin and are only really useful for light camping in good weather. Pay a bit more and you'll get a double skin which means the water won't leak straight through the walls and condensation stays on the outer skin. The seam will often be poorly stitched tho and can leak or come apart. 30 - 40 will get you an average tent that, if taken care of will last you a couple years of occasional use. Pay a bit more and you'll get a much better tent that should last you a good few years and stand up to some of the more adverse weather conditions we tend to get.


Could somebody stop the room please... I'd like to get off
