Sue Wilkinson of Fancy Tapes reflects on her experience at the UK Hoop Gathering this weekend. She writes, “I really enjoyed the hoop gathering because it was so nice to be with so many people who understood and shared a love for these strange rings of plastic. But it wasn’t all about hoops. The burlesque girls were great and the 5 rythms dance was really enjoyable, although totally knackering! … And watching the performers on Saturday night was lovely. Karin’s beautiful long body, so effortlessly (seemingly, we know different) dancing, and the really surprising performance from Steve who hadn’t been expecting to perform at that point and who pulled off trick after trick all at such speed that it left you wondering what you had actually seen.” More reflections here.
