Posted:Short report:

6 days of wonderful playtime. Theme nights:

Monday - Opening
Tuesday - Cabaret
Wednesday - Children show
Thursday - Renegade
Friday - Open Stage
Saturday - Fire Jam

10am to 6pm workshops, like:

Dance (Brazil, Contact Improvisation, Shiva dance)
Aereal (silk)
Spinning (poi, staff, double staff, contact)
3 ball movement
Clowning
Slack rope
Contact juggling
Overtone singing
Sword

6pm - 10pm musicians and DJ's, like:

Shamananda (healing keyboard & vocals)
Jerome (trance)
Sophie (harp)
Kali (singer) Declan (percussion)
Sissi Perlinger (cabaret, percussion, guitar)
Matangi - Vicky & Danny (Hang and vocals)
Estas Tonne' (world gypsy guitar), Julien (Tabla), Julien (Violin), Vicky (vocals)
DJ Axailles (minimal electro house)
NeoBeo (chillout)
Baba-D (chillout & Maya initiations)
Ash (russian performance group, shamanic drums)

It's been an insane amount of work before and on the convention, which could only be mastered with the help of:

Lata (Pyropixies, UK/ India)
Jerome (grounded, France)
Veera (Australia)
Ying (Thailand)
Pierrick (Canada)
Moran (Israel)
Gora (Hungary)
Ruth (Circus 2 Iraq)
Nico (Russia)
Benji (France)
Juliette (France)

not to forget GURU (India) - he's a star!

We had a wonderful shopping area, that added another touch of beauty with the Pixie crew, Olivier, Lucca, Jerome and many more.

All in all there have been about 2.000 ppl visiting the convention in these 6 days - most of them in the evening to watch the theme nights, most of them on Saturday night.

I was not bowing to the demands for bribe to the local administration and police, so they came on Saturday during the fire jam to shut us down - for this fact I'd like to offer a public apology.

I don't want to go into details as the court case is still pending, only stating that I spent 24hrs in police custody. I expected worse, but the cell was clean and I didn't have to stand with my back to the wall at any time.

The news about this spread all over the state like wildfire and the fame and recognition I still receive due to this event is not comforting me - I'm not doing this for the fame and people don't really care who is the person behind the face.

So I'm sweeping up the remains now, clear my files and prepare to leave India asap, taking a holiday in Thailand until the dust settled and those who all of a sudden reckon to know me finish their holidays. Thereafter I'll come back here to wrap up my house and think about my bad self.

The InJuCo is alive and we will have a gala show - this Monday.
I'm already in gentle preparation of next season.
Trust me, this has been an invaluable (learning) experience for me and next time everything will be in place even before the doors open.

Another compliment to all the crew involved - grouphug without you I wouldn't have been able to make it happen. Thanks for your support and generosity - due to which the InJuCo 2010 is pre-financed already.

You R.O.C.K. bounce2 peace ubbrollsmile
