I’m not going to the world Yo-Yo Contest, even though for the first time in years it’s being held in Europe – Prague to be precise. I’m going to miss out on catching up with a lot of old friends and acquaintances and miss out on making more in in the Yo-Yo world. And that’s not to mention seeing some of the greatest Yo-Yo play there has been in history. I’m also missing out on the chance to get new material and ideas for Down-Up and possibly securing the show a sponsor (if anyone is interested send me a mail).
Instead I’m going to the biggest arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh Fringe. I’m hoping to bring Down-Up there next year, all things going well so thought I should have a look round for potential venues. I’m after a small 50-150 seater, concentrated space that I can set up a projector. I worked in the Fringe last year, as part of Smashed and although it was a lot of work and I got sick for a few days it was probably one of the most fun experiences I’ve had (the Fringe that is -not being sick).
If you can recommend any shows or spaces to see drop me a message.
