First Australian Contortion and Handbalancing Festival
Coff's Harbour, January 2010

Organized by Jasmine Straga, Marco Moreno and Andrew McQueen
held at the Australian School of Circus Arts
, Coff's Harbour

We had 4 days of training, performances, talks, and chatting with like-minded people.

Talk on medical aspects of contortion by Dr. Len Notaras, then Jasmine, Tami Dawson

One notable participant was Mim Syme, whose striking charisma as a performer, together with her abilities and commitment, mark her out for success. She is currently performing professionally.


Bonnie Sambrook amazed us with her natural flexibility, surely making her one of the most flexible people in Australia. However, Valentina did not seem to appreciate it.
