The Hoopurbia Project (2012 + Beyond!)

<p> <strong>HOOPURBIA: where urban hooping meets music, video &amp; dance</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://imgur.com/QjpIm" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/QjpIm.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> (Image: Hoopurbia Founders, 2012)</p> <p>  </p> <p> The most important part of the HOOPURBIA story is Beka Hoop aka Rebecca Halls' vision of HOOPURBIA as a replicable, sustainable event model that will blast the beloved art form of hooping into the future. </p> <p> How? First off, by intentionally connecting to other renowned artists in dance, music, fashion &amp; video.</p> <p> Secondly, by paying teachers and performers to participate. Hooping and hoop dancing won't be fully recognized if we keep giving away our talents.</p> <p> THAT MEANS: by supporting HOOPURBIA you are not only supporting cutting edge interdisciplinary dance-music-film, but also the professionalization of the art of hoop dance and the future of hoop dance.</p> <p> In 2012, HOOPURBIA happened in BERLIN.  In 2013, it could happen anywhere, from Tokyo or Helsinki to Melbourne or Chicago. Help us grow it. </p> <p>  </p> <p> *      *      *      *      *</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/1xWLY.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/1xWLY.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>BERLIN 2012</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>WHAT:</strong> The first edition of HOOPURBIA was a three-day event in July 2012 that brought many of the world's top hooping talents to Berlin, to create and film a site specific structured improvisation inspired by the wild spirit of this city. Workshops, hooping flash mobs, site specific performance, dance parties, a high caliber, performance showcase and a screening of <i>The Hooping Life</i> to round out the weekend. </p> <p> Short dance for camera pieces of HOOPURBIA 2012 video will be shared with millions of viewers through our network of musicians, video and filmmakers, and hoopers around the globe.</p> <p> Below, are several locations from the Berlin Hoopurbia 2012 hooping flashmob, site specific performance and video shoots:</p> <p> Potsdamer Platz, Brandenburger Gate, Schlesiches Tor, Arawe Temple.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://imgur.com/CEsOU" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/CEsOU.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://imgur.com/2voDK" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/2voDK.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://imgur.com/uKo3j" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/uKo3j.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://imgur.com/rSWdR" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/rSWdR.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>WHO: </strong> Internationally reknowned performers and teachers include: Beka Hoop (CAN), Gail O'Brien (UK), Geoffrey Szuzkiewicz (CAN), Henna Matahoops (FIN), Lena Schmidt (DE), Malcolm Stuart (USA), Michele Clark (USA), &amp; Spiral Hoop Dance (USA).</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://youtu.be/VKORThXT344" target="_blank">Here's Malcom talking about Hoopurbia 2012</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VKORThXT344?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://youtu.be/cfV6gbznroI" target="_blank">Here's Malcolm at work/play</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/cfV6gbznroI?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz75zUjMtv8" target="_blank">Here is Spiral talking about Hoopurbia &amp; her creative process.</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/gz75zUjMtv8?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://youtu.be/o5WGk-DTe88" target="_blank">Here's Spiral at work/play</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/o5WGk-DTe88?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://youtu.be/947VgttnHRs" target="_blank">Here's Geoffrey talking about Hoopurbia 2012..&amp; hooping.</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/947VgttnHRs?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe6p44lc6wY" target="_blank">Gail at work/play</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/xe6p44lc6wY?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://youtu.be/rOStNymaUN8" target="_blank">Here's Beka at work/play</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/rOStNymaUN8?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://vimeo.com/38366387" target="_blank">Here's Michele at work/play</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="272" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/38366387" width="480"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> In 2012, Hoopurbia will lead a group of 34 hoopers in a a hooping flashmob on the opening day of the Olympics at the Sony Centre, in Potsdamer Platz and a two day site specific structured improvisation and video shoot in various locations around Berlin with internationally acclaimed director Einar Snorri.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Music producers involved in Hoopurbia 2012 include Gentle People (DE), GusGus (ICE), HRDVISION (CAN), Human Woman (ICE), Johann Fanger (DE), Peter Bounce (DE), The Drifter (IRE), &amp; Unnur Andrea (ICE).</p> <p>  </p> <p> WHERE:  2012 workshops and creative development happened at the Wye, a creative hub in Berlin that provides residency opportunities, and quality cultural programming supporting artists contributing to the greater art world.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The performance showcase and club night took place at Arena campus (famous for its pool, the Badeschiff, which floats in Berlin's Spree River).</p> <p>  </p> <p> Both venues are located smack dab in the center of Berlin's coolest neighborhood, Kreuzberg.

Waar dient de collecte voor

<p> Hosting the 2012 conference means renting our awesome location as well as flying in the talented teachers and collaborating artists and paying them stipends, which amounts to 20,000€.</p> <p> It's true we can off set part of those costs through participant fees, there's still 5000€ we need to raise from wonderful you. We've set the goal a little lower (3000€) to ensure reaching it this year (and we dearly hope the funds raised will exceed the goal and reach the 5000€ mark!)</p> <p> Please support hoopurbia, and tell your friends!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
