Sunday, 1991-09-08 to Sunday, 1991-09-15


Tbilisi, Georgia, USSR


The Theatre Union of Georgia in the USSR invites jugglers to a festival in that republic's capital city, Tbilisi, Sept. 8-15, 1991. The invitation arose from a visit to that city by European convention organisers Lee Hayes and Haggis McLeod.

Some details remain to be negotiated, but preliminary plans call for up to 300 jugglers to take a charter flight to Tbilisi from Berlin. There are two sports halls available for juggling, and accommoda­tion will be in hostels at a university or in the homes of families in town. There will be public shows on three of the seven nights, two of which will be in the 1,850­ seat circus building, and one in a 6,000­ seat sports hall. Sightseeing trips will also be part of the package. It is probable that jugglers and teachers from several Soviet state circuses will also attend. Cost of the whole festival, including air fare, food and accommodations, is about $500.

The airline seats will be assigned on a first come, first served basis, and visa processing takes some time.
