Bosnian Acro Convention 2020
August 22 @ 08:00 - August 29 @ 17:00
International Bosnian Acro Convention AKRO KRUPA 2020
We’re glad to announce the Acro Convention in Krupa na Vrbasu “AKRO KRUPA” will be held from the 22d till the 29th of August 2020!
Our teachers for now are the well known Noël Spauwen, who already came in 2011, 2012 and 2018, the beautiful Acrology duo from Spain (David WT and David Sanjuan), Franziska Pack and Christian “Kiki” Peter aka “the kickpäck” and Verena Lanena ! Stan Grauwels from BalanCirk (Belgium) will also give a hand
The arrangement will be similar to the previous editions, so, if you’ve been here already and if you liked it, please join us again!!
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.
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 organize 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.
