Japan Juggling Festival 2003(JJF2003) will be held
in Sendai city, Japan this summer (Aug.22-24).
Pre-registration has started.

There will be a public show, a contest, free stages and
a lot of workshops and games.
You can find almost everything you expect in juggling festivals
(Sorry, the gym has to be closed during nights).

The theme of JJF2003 is "Young and Talented".
You'll see the theme in the list of performers
for the Public Show.

JJF2003 public show will feature:

Vova & Olga Galchenko from Russia
No explanation needed here in rec.juggling.
The rising stars of ball and club juggling armed with piano.

Ryo Yabe,a local in Sendai
2002 IJA Junior Champion.
He is a young master of diabolos and he also is good at
clubs and balls.
He won in a TV show contest in Japan and caught the hearts
of general audience.
How far has he gone since last year?

Hard Puncher Shinn-no-suke, Japan (MC)
One of the best devilstick players in Japan.
He mixes crisp and technical devilstick routines
with twisted sense of humor.

You can get the idea of JJF in JUGGLE magazine (Jan/Feb 2003).
The size of the festival is rather small yet,
but the attendants are quite enthusiastic and innovative.
