Spunout2013 Apr26 to 29 - Colin's world

Postby ColinOldnCranky » Sat Apr 20, 2013 10:34 am

Next weekend is the big weekend in my calendar - Spunout.

Spunout is a weekend of workshops on what can loosley be termed "circus arts" - with a heritage of fire but not at all restricted to it. Indeed most of what I do is not at all fire, thogh I do like a bit of fire eating and body tracing with flame. It is put on by the fire and spinning crowd in perth and is not-for-profit. There will be around 90 to 100 people, typically about half being strangers to use and a fair few family groups. The bulk of people camp on-site but there are also dormitories. Space is never a problem.

If you are at a loss for next weekend, have a look at the info and registration page at http://www.play-learn-burn.com/

There are multiple workshops on and people are free to pick and choose or even chill out and have a break. I usually go for a daytime ride if I can be spared. Regardless, early morning rides are great and no traffic at all.

For an idea of what to expect, there is an old video wrap of the 2008 weekend at http://s991.photobucket.com/user/colinoldncranky/media/Spunout2008-Fireweekendwrapup.mp4.html. Sorry about the quality.

So, love to see any of you there. It is fair to say that we have never had anyone regret heading there.

The dome (8 metres) is portable, we built it as a perth fire group project. And it looks magical at night lit up inside and with tarps and fabric on it. It can hang trapezes, people, screens and stuff on it.

If you ever need a statement structure at some event, let me know.
