Guru-guru Camp in Metropolis

Sareh spins fire on the cover of Metropolis this week

Metropolis is Tokyo’s long-running English weekly events and features magazine. This week, Guru-guru Camp is part of their roundup of fun things to do during the Golden Week holiday. Not only did we get a plug, but we got the cover of the magazine. Sareh is grinning wildly while fire hooping on the beach last summer in this photo by Richard Northcott.

Inside the magazine, you’ll see Roon Roon with her LED hoop and a shot of me during Rainbow Michael’s minis workshops at the 2009 Spin Matsuri. Fabulous coverage. The text says


Hone your spinning action and your clownish tomfoolery on the island of Niijima, Tokyo for Guru-guru Camp. This fest of themed hoop workshops with related circus-y antics such as poi and juggling is totally free, though you do have to negotiate the choppy waters on the Takeshiba ferry (¥6,000 one way; 10 hours), or the Jetboat ferry (¥9,000 one way; 3 hours). Stay one night or all week and get some exercise and relaxation—and put a definite spring in your step.

I wonder if this will bring anyone new to camp next week? Don’t forget that  non-spinners are welcome, too, so bring your friends. Camp starts on Friday morning!
