A journey back to Middle Earth…

We first started learning how to do poi at the One World Festival back in England where one of the workshops was learning circus skills. One of the main attractions in this workshop was poi so Nilay and I tried it out. It turned out to be great and we insisted that we got a pair so we made our own poi out of socks with tennis balls in their heels trapped in by knots with a string tied to the end.
These were great to practise with but not so good for a “real” performance, which we want to do at our leaving party in Emmendingen in Germany.
In Berlin we researched where we could buy poi, and we found a great little circus shop in Charlottenburg. On Tuesday we went there and Nilay and I could both choose a nice new pair of poi with silk scarves attached. We are going to use them for performances.
