What a day!
Once oddballs had set up and the convention started, the large sports hall came alive with so much varied talent from tightrope walking to 7 club juggling. Gazing across the room to see so many props flying through the air and patterns was mesmerising. As always the reception we had was lovely and everyone was super friendly, collectively sharing the love of the world of circus. We had the opportunity to help teach people new tricks and be dazzled by others abilities throughout the day.
Wow, this show was definitely one of the best I’ve seen. The compère Maarten willy Wils from Belgium was brilliant, his humour was on point and had many engaging jokes and never a dull moment while he was on stage. We were treated to a beautifully elegant and athletic hoop performance by Elina from Finland which incorporated very controlled handstands and gymnastic moves with technical hooping tricks to amaze.
Ieuan evens performed his stunning ring act displaying some flowing balancing tricks and manipulations followed by a neat 7 ring flash to finish.
We had Lili and Kenny perform an amazing acro balance and gymnastic style routine which was very well choreographed and impressed with every leap, tumble and bound.
Ben and Fred brought a creative guitar and club juggling duet which not only demonstrated some highly skilled patterns by Frederike but also brought comedy with interaction from Ben while playing his guitar.
The Camvention organisers not only made this convention happen but found time to work on a mesmerising ball and club passing act which was very creative and thoroughly enjoyable to watch with the whole stage alive with some very talented jugglers.
To end this fabulous show of delightfulness we had an incredible diabolo routine which worked body popping and diabolo together to create an intense robotic creation that added isolation to make our minds play tricks. Guilluame karpowicz had us in awe and we found his skill and creations highly entertaining.
Overall this convention had us buzzing and wanting to share and explore everything that we saw. What a great bunch of incredible individuals ever pushing their skill levels in the props we all love.
