Akro Krupa – Bosnian International Acro Convention 2020

August 22, 2020 - August 29, 2020


AKRO KRUPA 22-29.08.2020

We’re glad to announce the Acro Convention in Krupa na Vrbasu “AKRO KRUPA” will be held from the 22d till the 29th of August 2020!

Save the date!

Our teachers for now are the well known Noël Spauwen, who already came in 2011, 2012 and 2018, the beautiful Acrology duo from Spain (David WT and David Sanjuan), Franziska Pack and Christian “Kiki” Peter aka “the kickpäck” and Verena Lanena ! Stan Grauwels from BalanCirk (Belgium) will also give a hand J

The arrangement will be similar to the previous editions, so, if you’ve been here already and if you liked it, please join us again!!

The whole idea of the convention is of course to enjoy all together in the sun by the river, but also to bring some circus to Bosnia and Herzegovina, as it is not common at all here.

“Acro Krupa” is a relatively small event (60 acrobats max). We would like everybody to be involved to shape it the way they would like it to be! So, please propose your own workshop/activity – Eg. : if you juggle, practice tissue, slackline, do yoga, or if anything else you’d like to share, go ahead! There will be slots in the timetable dedicated for workshops given by the participants.

General program :

Saturday 22.08.2020 : Arrival day

There won’t be any planned workshop that day. We expect you at the campsite from 15h, but you can arrive at any time, relax and put your tent. There will be an open dinner in the late afternoon so that everybody can already meet and hang out together in the evening.

From Sunday 23rd till Friday 28th

After breakfast on Sunday the 23rd  we will have a collective warming up led by the trainers to get to know each other, and also for the trainers to get to know the level of  the participants.

Acrobatics and circus program, what to expect?

All in all during the week there will be daily between 6 and 7 workshops (of 1h30, 2h or 3h each), morning and afternoon session. There will always be at least 2 workshops in parallel so everybody can find something interesting and to his/her level.

There will also be “specials”: participants can ask the trainers for a “special” , meaning 15-20min of private teaching in duo, trio or quartet to put all the attention on one technique (trick).

There will be time for free floor and free practice, sometimes under the guidance of a teacher.

There will also be longes, for higher acrobatics tricks trained in the safest way!

There will be a collective warming up every morning, led by a trainer, but you are very welcome to warm up also individually before each workshop.

Participation is always at your own responsibility. If a workshop is clearly above your level, you should either tell the workshop leader, or stop participating.

Depending on the weather, the afternoon break will be longer or shorter: if the weather is very warm we’ll start earlier, have a long ‘Spanish’ break, and train again in the late afternoon. If the temperature is more moderate we’ll start a little later in the morning, shorten the lunch break and have a longer break in the evening.

The level of the workshops will be adapted to the level of the participants. If there is a large variety in level (less /more experienced), there will be workshops for different levels. Some workshops will also be suitable for everyone.

You don’t need to bring a partner to the convention, but if you have one, take him or her along!

If you want to practice some aerial it is possible to hang your trapeze, ring or tissue in the trees around, or in the school nearby for indoors trainings.

In the evening, we will try to offer some activities such as a night walk, a campfire, a movie screening in the open, etc.  and you’re very welcome to bring your music instruments, juggling gear, slacklines etc.

The previous years we used to organize a show on the last evening in Banjaluka, as acrobatics and circus in general is definitely not really common in Bosnia Herzegovina. This is an idea to discuss, as it brings a very nice and creative energy to the whole festival. Of course, maybe not all the participants want to take part in the show.

Keep the idea in mind and let’s see how we feel in August!!


Your holidays in Bosnia & Herzegovina?

We know that Bosnia Herzegovina is a bit off the main road, but actually, besides its recent turbulent history, it has a lot of splendid nature to offer.

As you might be coming from far to Krupa na Vrbasu for “just” a week of acro, we invite you to consider to spend some more time in the country under professional guidance for climbing, hiking, rafting etc. Ask us, we’ll be glad to give you some tips or to organize you an exciting trip  J


Also, it can be interesting for you to know about the Fourth Hungarian Acrobatic Convention (4th HAC): August 12th-20th 2020 . Contact Noël Spauwen and register on  www.acrofalva.wordpress.com
