Bring your parents and friends - and be the one to receive a "contortion oscar" for your performance.


Since we are always asked about dates and fees - here are the first infos for you.


We would like to point out, that the International Contortion Convention is -- and always has been -- a NON-PROFIT event. Most of us are rendering their services (such as travel, websites, workshops etc...) free of charge. However we are facing a lot of charges -- only to mention the hotel convention and show rooms and many other costs which are involved in organising such an event.
Nevertheless we are trying to keep the costs for our attendees as reasonable as possible.
