Beautiful Bali

Nick's spent a few months a year in Bali since first going in 2007.  Playpoi artists often convenes there to work on projects and host retreats.  Included here are some of our adventures, some of the people we've met, and lots of beauty.

European Poi Tours

We tend to spend our summers in Europe touring around doing workshops, meeting exciting people, and making poi videos.  Many of these videos now appear in our DVD, Adventures in Poi: Moves

We'll be here until mid-August, brainstorming, writing, plotting, researching, filming, etc. Did you know that I wish to slowly become a cult-celebrity filmmaker? Well now you do.
