Poi is a form of dance where balls on the ends of ropes are swung through rhythmical patterns. It originates with the Maori people of New Zealand, who originally used poi to develop grace, flexibility, and combat skills. Poi eventually developed into a traditional ritual entwined with song, symbolic gesture, and storytelling.

Poi was popularized throughout the world initially by fire-spinning, a recent and non-Maori take on the ancient art. As poi spread, enthusiasts borrowed from other disciplines such as martial-arts, tai-chi, dance, Indian club swinging, and rhythmic gymnastics to develop a dynamic movement modality.

Beginner Levitational Wand : Basic to intermediate

Posted: May 12, 2018 by lambentI2e in Workshop

Date : 16 May, 20 Jun, 18 Jul, 15 Aug, 19 Sep, 17 Oct, 21 Nov, 19 Dec 2018
Time : 7-8pm
Venue : 71 Sultan Gate, Singapore 198496

Master the modern levitation wand dance! Explore movement, space and rhythm, while improving your grace, coordination and focus.

Featuring the Flow Wand, the Flow Wand is a toy for delightful momentum play based on an old-skool magic trick- the floating cane- and developed for dance and flow by Prisna of Flowtoys. Accessible and fun, the Flow Wand is lovingly referred to by the Flowtoys crew as “the gateway prop”, as it often give those new to spinning their first, delicious taste of Flow. With practice, an illusion is achieved that the wand is ‘floating’ in space, around your body as you dance.

Although it is an easy tool to master, the flow wand requires you to slow down and follow rather than lead. We are dancing with the Universal flow.

We’ll start with the basics of the wand, including gaining proficiency with the balance point, guiding the wand through space, isolations and spirals.

Discover how by playing with the flow wand can help you explore coordination, spartial perception and body alignment. It is also an amazing and fun art form for creative self-expression and finding your own rhythm; and the “Music of Movement.”

Flow wands are available for participants of the workshop. Flow wands are also available for sale, please indicate when registering.

The Levitation Wand is a mystifying prop for flow, manipulation, dance, and performance. The leviwand (levitation wand, levitation stick, levistick, flow-wandTM) is inspired from a classic magic trick called the “Dancing Cane”. It is a cleverly balanced stick with a thin, invisible string somewhere in the middle that is also attached to the magician. The magician appears to control the cane with his mind, the cane seemingly floating in mid-air, while making it dance to music.

After last years event completely sold out in just 36 hours…
CHUR BURN returns to the depths to bring wholesome CHUR vibes, in a nourishing bass-heavy melting pot, for you and your friends to radically express your most Sacred & Profane selves.

FRI 20th -and- SAT 21st of April, 2018
This is an after-burn party to re-ignite the magic of Kiwiburn festival. 650+ people will come together on a Tug Boat for two equally incredible multi-zone dance parties, hosted by the friendly bass bandits of Barrio Del Chur.

~TICKETS ON SALE HERE, MONDAY 19th MARCH @ 7PM~
Single Night Ticket: $30/ticket
Double Night Ticket: $50/ticket
No door sales – this sells out weeks before the event.

NOTE: As always, both events finish time of 4am is dependant on local council granting a license extension from 1am to 4am. This has never been an issue in the past, but it’s still ultimately their decision, and it’s important for us to let you know this. We’ll announce the extension as soon as it is granted.

EXPECT: a spectacular all-night production full of multi-faceted levels of mind-blowing sensory entertainment, sure to fill you with joy, connection and sparkles! We have a spectacular line-up of contributors featuring the paddock’s finest DJs & VJ talent, dance performers, fire spinning, illusions, live art, flavour bombs, party postal service, gifting, and roaming theatrics. Get in touch if you’d like to gift something (face/body paint, performance, food, hydration, art, poetry, volunteer shift etc)

DRESS CODE:
Regular street clothes will not cut the mustard!
COSTUMES COSTUMES COSTUMES!
Come as the most CHUR version of your self. A full-blown rockstar. Tight & bright, ridiculous & revealing, bold & beautiful, fantasy & facepaint. Careful though: things like sequins, feathers and glitter are a NO-NO as they fall off easily and create MOOP! (matter out of place) … in other words, rubbish!

We will transform our floating docked VENUE in to a spectacular wonderland of exceptional visual stimuli – layers of decor, smoke haze, trippy illusions, laser lighting effects, projection mapping, and other out-of-this world visual paraphernalia!
//ZONE ONE: The ENGINE ROOM – The main dance floor arena downstairs in the hull of The Tug, where the DJs let rip, the performers flaunt their talents, the main bar is serving drinks and the party is truly ACTIVATED.
//ZONE TWO: The BAR LOUNGE booth seating, cool and hot refreshments, greeters, coat-check and harbour night views.
//ZONE THREE: CHILL ZONE – An ultra-soft chill space featuring soft lounging layers of super snuggly things: pillows, hammocks, stuffed animals, blankies, combined with trippy decor, visuals, soft UV lighting, and an ever-lasting psychedelic downtempo musical playlist.

VJs: To be announced… You’re in for a treat!

The night will have direction and intention, guiding you on a journey from start to finish, adding each mind-blowing element to your evening chapter by chapter, like a smorgasbord of nourishing party ingredients allowing you to design and control your party sandwich in whatever way you choose to roll.

Please join us, and participate in this insane event to your full creative party potential. Go nuts on your costume, bring a gift to share with someone, leave no trace, respect others.

This is Chur Burn. Thank you so much, We love you. ♥

**Proceeds from this event go towards the production of Barrio del Chur, future projects and parties, and our theme camp at Kiwiburn 2017. Thank you for your on-going support.
Radical Inclusion: If you are in financial hardship but really really want/need to come to Chur Burn, contact Barrio del Chur and we’ll see what we can do.
