I was at #TRAP last week. TRAP [0] is a circus space that is placed in Vienna, Austria. This place was wonderful to train. There were three rooms, but I was only using the hall. The project is a habiTAT [1] project which is supporting and realizing self-organized and socially bound apartment building projects.

The people training at TRAP were very friendly. One of them was lending me their bicycle to be able to fetch some food from the nearby supermarket. I met people I knew from circus conventions years ago. It was a good training atmosphere at the space. Everybody was working on their projects and being supportive to each other. In the small entrance/chill area people hang around chatting and eating.

I would love to have such a place where I live. Thanks to TRAP for this wonderful project. When you are in Vienna and want to train some circus consider visiting this lovely circus space.

I had a great time at #BJC2024 -- Thanks so much to all the organizers and volunteers!

I thought I'd share two things:

1. I made some notes to go with some of the club-passing workshops (and a bonus workshop from a previous convention):

2. I forgot my hand-cream and got dry/cracked hands from all the juggling and hand-washing. Fortunately @Heydar is awesome and gave me some E45. Because I noticed that the mixer taps in the toilets were almost always turned to their hottest setting, I'm sharing a tip from a friend in the NHS: don't use really hot water for frequent hand-washing. Concerned I might be spreading disinformation, I checked a literature review. It seems to back up that using hot water can cause dermatitis, and that it's not necessary for hygiene. Warm/tepid water is recommended (and cold water is fine if you still wash your hands for long enough?).

Hi Bex, welcome to The Edge. (You could use it to record all the events you attend on your travels, if you like.) Hope you have a brilliant time travelling!

Oh, wow, such a huge undertaking, >>all over the world<<! All the good for that for you!
Do you carry a set of foreign languages with you, or will you be using face, hands & feet and online translators?

New here!

Not new to juggling. Juggled a lot from 2000 - 2014 or so. Visited many festivals all over Europe and the UK.

Then had a family.

Now getting back into visiting festivals. I see the usual crowd is still here :-)

Nice to see you all again. Hope to meet RL soon.

Hi Malaysia Juggler here. Juggling for 3 years and currently working on 6 and 7 ball siteswaps. I practice juggling about twice a week for 3 hours total and still able to make progress. There is rarely any jugglers in my country so I find inspiration from jugglers around the world.

Hi, welcome to the Edge!

Hi Teh Yi Shern & welcome.
Impressing repertoire and records, that you logged there, even more with only 3 h\w! Have you ever tried 7b-95678, it's also a fun one, ... ahm ... I believe :-)

Teh Yi Shern - - Parent

Hi, thanks. 3hours of practice a week is actually what I do now to be able to maintain while progressing the skills but my first 3 years of juggling I was juggling almost everyday for 1-3hours. And wow never heard of that siteswap before thanks for sharing, looks like a combination of 756 with the 7 thrown higher (9) while doing half of 867 (78) at the bottom and also the bottom throws after 9 (5678) all thrown to a single side. Looks like a pattern needed for very accuracy throws for each height in order not collide after looking at the siteswap generator, lol, maybe i need to get over 100 catches with 756 first and a few runs with 867 :)

7b_wizard - - Parent

Yes, five thrown to one side, sidechange, a s.o. I like to write these like I think & focus & do them, so 56789 for this one ( and around the middle digit that tells how many balls it is ).
Afaik it's called towers, together with like 4b-7531, 5b-97531, and alike, and I think also versions with evens.

Teh Yi Shern - - Parent

Wow never know you can look at it that way. Just tried the 5b version of 34567 its definitely harder than tower patterns like 97531 which is only odd (across) throws, as its alternating between cross and vertical throws, i got some alot of collision lol trying it first time as i realized it requires scoop throws from the inside of the body as it hard to do it with a wide pattern which makes it very prone to collision, will definitely put this in my practice as its like another aesthetically visualizing tower pattern but uses both cross and vertical throws making the pattern look more complicated and indirect compared to 97531
