Germany: Contortionists get bent for final ICC performance

The three-day convention hosts world's top contortionists and returned to Germany after being moved to Las Vegas 13 years ago.

Among the performers were Zlata, a 27-year-old Russian and Guinness World Record Holder for most bendy woman among other titles, and George the Rubber Guru, a contortionist hailing from Ghana.

The performance was comprised of ten different acts with a ten minute interval in between. Performers travelled from as far as Brisbane, Australia to showcase their talents.

The idea for the convention came from famed contortionist and mentor Ska von Schoening in 1998. The first convention was held in Dresden.
