  • Event: Cambridge Acro Festival 2020 (see event on JugglingEdge)

  • Country: UK
  • When: 2020-08-12 From 12:00 Until 20:00
  • About: Cambridge Acro Festival is Back

    For the fourth year in a row we've rented out the MASSIVE Cambridge sports hall. Standing tricks, L based acro, handstands, flexibility, tumbling - the lot. With ~6 workshops running at any one time, we expect everyone from absolutely beginner to extremely advanced to be entertained.

    For anyone wanting to jam, we'll also have a dedicated mat space set aside, plus 3 lunges.

    And, most importantly, a huge supply of tea and coffee.


    TEACHERS
    Great teachers = great workshops = great convention.


    TICKETS
    Tickets will go on sale in the next couple of months. We'll update the FB page!


    YOUR LEVEL
    Beginners - expect to be welcomed. We always have at least 1 workshop at any one time which is completely beginner friendly (i.e. if you don't even know what acro is, there will still be teaching suitable for you).

    Intermediate - expect fun, challenges, and variety.

    Advanced - you won't be bored. We have some extremely high level teachers planned, who are never short of ways of upping the difficulty if it looks like you're cruising, and also plenty of lunges for jam time.


    ACCOMMODATION:
    There will be a (limited) number of spaces for people to stay with lovely Cambridge acrobats who have offered to put up some visitors from out of town. Alternatively there are plenty of hotels / airbnbs in the area (these book up quite quickly in the summer though so it's worth being organised)


    FOOD:
    Tea and coffee are provided in large quantities throughout the festival. Please bring a mug (and spare mugs!). We will also provide some light snacks. For meals, you can either:
    - head to the nearby Sainsbury's (about a 10 minute walk)
    - order takeaways to the sports hall (we recommend using Deliveroo)
    - go out for food in the beautiful historic city of Cambridge
    - cook with your host (check with them first..!)


    TRANSPORT:
    By air: Stansted airport is by far the most convenient. From there, you can either hire a car and drive to the sports hall (30 min drive; parking is easy) or you can take the train (see below)

    By train: Cambridge Station is the most convenient. Cambridge North Station is much less convenient. From Cambridge Station here you can take Busway Route U directly from the station to the sports hall.

    By car: there is loads of parking just outside the venue.

  • Event: Bosnia Acro Convention - Akro Krupa - Bosnia Acro Convention - Akro Krupa (see event on JugglingEdge)
  • Where: Krupa na Vrbasu (see map)
  • Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina (Босна и Херцеговина)
  • When: 2020-08-22 From 17:00
  • About: The whole idea of the convention is of course to enjoy all together in the sun by the river, but also to bring some circus to Bosnia and Herzegovina, as it is not common at all here.
    “Acro Krupa” is a relatively small event (60 acrobats max). We would like everybody to be involved to shape it the way they would like it to be! So, please propose your own workshop/activity – Eg. : if you juggle, practice tissue, slackline, do yoga, or if anything else you’d like to share, go ahead! There will be slots in the timetable dedicated for workshops given by the participants.

    General Programme:
    Saturday 22.08.2020 : Arrival day
    There won’t be any planned workshop that day. We expect you at the campsite from 15h, but you can arrive at any time, relax and put your tent. There will be an open dinner in the late afternoon so that everybody can already meet and hang out together in the evening.
    From Sunday 23rd till Friday 28th
    After breakfast on Sunday the 23rd we will have a collective warming up led by the trainers to get to know each other, and also for the trainers to get to know the level of the participants.

    From Sunday the timetable will look like this
    8:00-9:00 Breakfast
    9:00-10:00 Warming up
    10:30-12:00 3 workshops given by trainers
    12:30 Lunch break
    15:30-17:00 2 workshops given by trainers
    17:30-19:00 2 workshops OR free floor and specials
    19:15 Dinner

    Wednesday will be a free day for the trainers and it will be possible to go rafting (registration needed) Participants are welcome to give workshops on that day!
    On Friday night we could have the show in Banjaluka (if everyone agrees) So that Thursday and Friday afternoon could be devoted to the construction of the show :)

    Acrobatics and circus program, what to expect?
    All in all during the week there will be daily between 6 and 7 workshops (of 1h30, 2h or 3h each), morning and afternoon session. There will always be at least 2 workshops in parallel so everybody can find something interesting and to his/her level.
    There will also be “specials”: participants can ask the trainers for a “special” , meaning 15-20min of private teaching in duo, trio or quartet to put all the attention on one technique (trick).
    There will be time for free floor and free practice, sometimes under the guidance of a teacher.
    There will also be longes, for higher acrobatics tricks trained in the safest way!
    There will be a collective warming up every morning, led by a trainer, but you are very welcome to warm up also individually before each workshop.
    Participation is always at your own responsibility. If a workshop is clearly above your level, you should either tell the workshop leader, or stop participating.
    Depending on the weather, the afternoon break will be longer or shorter: if the weather is very warm we’ll start earlier, have a long ‘Spanish’ break, and train again in the late afternoon. If the temperature is more moderate we’ll start a little later in the morning, shorten the lunch break and have a longer break in the evening.
    The level of the workshops will be adapted to the level of the participants. If there is a large variety in level (less /more experienced), there will be workshops for different levels. Some workshops will also be suitable for everyone.
    You don’t need to bring a partner to the convention, but if you have one, take him or her along!
    If you want to practice some aerial it is possible to hang your trapeze, ring or tissue in the trees around, or in the school nearby for indoors trainings.
    In the evening, we will try to offer some activities such as a night walk, a campfire, a movie screening in the open, etc. and you’re very welcome to bring your music instruments, juggling gear, slacklines etc.
    The previous years we used to organise a show on the last evening in Banjaluka, as acrobatics and circus in general is definitely not really common in Bosnia Herzegovina. This is an idea to discuss, as it brings a very nice and creative energy to the whole festival. Of course, maybe not all the participants want to take part in the show.
    Keep the idea in mind and let’s see how we feel in August!!

    Your holidays in Bosnia & Herzegovina?
    We know that Bosnia Herzegovina is a bit off the main road, but actually, besides its recent turbulent history, it has a lot of splendid nature to offer.
    As you might be coming from far to Krupa na Vrbasu for “just” a week of acro, we invite you to consider to spend some more time in the country under professional guidance for climbing, hiking, rafting etc. Ask us, we’ll be glad to give you some tips or to organise you an exciting trip 

    Please Register and Pay Before The 1st of May 2020 (early bird)

    Събитие като това се провежда за първи път в България и затова искаме да направим едно пояснение: жонгльорските конвенции са фестивален формат, който се провежда по цял свят и обединява всички изкуства, свързани с цирковата сцена (акробатика, еквилибристика, танци, музика, жонглиране и др. )
    Конвенциите са основани за отворен обмен на опит между артисти с артисти, както и артисти с любители, които искат да повишат своя тонус и концентрация в ежедневието и да придобият нови умения.

    ENGLISH:

    Hello! We finally have the opportunity and the place to invite you to the "First Bulgarian Juggling Convention" - Sofia.
    Special thanks to the “National Student House” who will provide their wonderful spaces to host it.
    An event like this has never been held in Bulgaria before, so we want to make one brief explanation: Juggling Conventions are a festival format, held all over the world that brings together all the arts related to the circus scene (acrobatics, equilibristics, dance, music, juggling, etc.) Conventions are based on the open exchange of experience between artists and artists, as well as artists and amateurs who want to increase their tone and concentration in their everyday life and learn some new skills.

    For three days in a row (9th - 10th - 11th October 2020 ) you will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops, games, fun activities and an amazing Gala evening suitable for all ages.

    The event is organised entirely by volunteers - so we will have a donation box. Workshops will work the same way - the funds are for the lecturers. There will only be a ticket for the Gala evening, as most of the funds will go to the artists.
    The funds raised will be used to host a new event.

    Conditions of the Convention:
    1. The hall is open for use:
    9th October from 5pm to 10pm
    10th October from 10am to 10pm
    11th October 10:30am to 6:30pm
    2. The hall is not a training room, but it has enough height
    3. Shows are held in the same hall
    4. Bar.
    5. Toilet.
    6. No showers.
    7. No camping
    8. Organisers reserve the right to make changes to the programme and dates of the event


    The Programme Will Be Published Very Soon

    P.S. Open call !
    Our team is small, so if you want to participate or help you are welcome to: do a workshop, share an interesting idea, take photos, join the Gala in the evening, etc.
    You can contact us with your ideas
