here's some pictures of the crowd. sorry they're all blurry. think of it as atmospheric. it was an amazing crowd and the costumes were so inventive! lots of really clever stuff and pretty stuff and really properly creepy stuff. lots of skulls, too. they had a little shrine to the dead under a tree, with photos and newspaper clippings and great streamers hanging from the branches.
these two were all in lycra with rollerblades and ski poles, zipping round:
this is just for the gaurox:
the blurry lights are from this fabulous fire twirling exhibition on the tennis courts.
this was the fire twirling. it was pretty amazing. they had poi, whips, swords, sticks, hula hoops, people on stilts with great chandelier things - spectacular. the person inside the red sheet thing turned out to be a short bearded guy with dragon wings who spat fire. and a young girl - his daughter?
this is the dancers around the drumming group - lots of people, great crowd.
there were three of these ppl but i only managed to get one.
