Jikoshokai - an introduction
I've been facinated by fire and spinning since I saw firepoi spun for the first time in Kyoto in April 2004 amd I first became involved in all this malarkey at DeCom2004
when I joined the lovely MiChelle
for some fire poi play. My toys of choice are: Fire poi, Fire Fingers, Glo Poi.
Nowhere2005 Fire Performance
Sadly could not put on the fireperformance we had planned as fire restrictions were in place. I was joined by SwissChris
for some firespinning and Santi and Duero duelled with fire swords made by BigEd
let rip with his flamethrower!
The theme for the DecomFirePerformance
2005 was 'The Fire Freaks Carnival' - lots of wonderful performances put together to create a circus of firey mahem with a finale involving jumping through a ring of fire and lovely fireworks provided by BigEd
. Big thanks to MiChelle
& Ed for creating the Elephants & Ring of Fire, to all the performers who got involved at the last minute and Yomi for arranging the coffin sound system.
Nowhere 2006 promises to be our most stylish performance yet! Again we expect fire restrictions to be in place so we are planning a very controlled performance. We hope to put on 2 choreographed shows on the Fri & Sat night. If you are UK based, spin fire / dance and are available to attend regular practices between April & June in London, then please contact me! If you are a fire performer, and want to get involved, please contact me to discuss performance possibilities?
Other Projects at Nowhere 2006
Keeping ssssshhhhh for now ;-)
I helped MiChelle
get the dome up. Along with Oscar, Peter, Maria, Kaat and the help of all the lovely unsaid others we united the CostumeExchange
area in the Dome to create a heavenly decadent relaxing gathering spot for Nowhere.
I also helped put together the Decor at Decom2005
, with the concept for the 'red room' and decorated the 'Vertigo room'.
