|( January 1,
2006 ) - International Contortion Convention 2006 news
I guess the news has already
spread. Another ICC is on its way !
per our original promise and tradition, the ICC 2006 will be in the
States again, namely in Las Vegas, the international capital of
we will entertain you with our new concept of less discussions and more
workshops and shows.
Already at this moment it looks as if we are going to have 3 shows in
order to cope with all the potential of artists and performances we can
present to you.
We´ll be there : Katharina & Alexis
The location is also
already booked. Have a look at:
Sams Town Hotel &
WOW ! THE NICEST
SHOWROOM WE HAD SO FAR !!!!
The hotel offered us
very good conditions for our guests and for the activities we have
Although it is not on
the Strip it is overall a very good choice. The whole setting is very
nice with lots of different restaurants and places. The rooms have all
been redecorated recently. There are shuttle busses to commute from and
to the airport and to the Strip every hour of the day.
I´ll be there : Vanessa
And last - but not
least - we got a very good room rate for our participants : It will be
69,- US$ for a Single or Double room per night. Families may ask for an
additional bed to be put into the room for a little extra charge.
Booking details will be
published in a few weeks. Please note though, that – in order to get the
reduced fare - all bookings have to be made mentioning the event name
For those who have been
sharing this event with us over the last years it will be nice to hear
that Klaus Bischoff is again on the boat with me planning and organizing
this event. I am extremely happy about this, because we seem to be a
good team for these tasks, which are getting bigger and better each
Now let's look a little
closer into the schedule we are planning to offer to you this time:
Over the recent ICCs we
have learned, that our ICC attendees were tremendously interested in
practising of stretching and contortion. Many of our former participants
were doing stretching and/or yoga themselves. Therefore we will offer
more workshops and classes for those who want to physically participate
in any such activity. In the past we had these actvities more as a side
program. This time we will focus on offering various and different
training techniques and ‘philosophies’ as a main item on the agenda
during this three-day-event.
At the same time we have experienced that
there is a huge interest in a more specialized and more detailed chance
for photosessions with contortion artists. Some have favourite
performers and would like to take more personalized photos of their
‘stars’. Upon request we will organize single or group photosessions
with those artists, who are happy to join this extra activity.
I´ll be there : Virginia
I´ll be there : Pina Conti

On the show side, we can already promise
that you will see many new – yet already very progressed - talents.
Our first show will be featuring a group
of young artists from Pennsylvania (10 to 12 young performers) in a show
full of pictures, dance, harmony and of course contortion. (More details
And obviously you will
be able to see a lot of professional contortion artists too. Artists you
have always wanted to see live…… once in your life!
So keep tuned with us.
From now on we will be updating this page on a regular basis with
new information on the upcoming, wonderful and great next International
Contortion Convention 2006.
