The BIG Festival 2014

February 24 to March 2
A Celebration of the Body In Gravity


The BIG Festival is a BIG week of Contact.

With a generation of Contact Improvisation in Melbourne as inspiration, BIG traces the body-contact as it travels through the forces at play in our home city, our world and our community.

BIG begins with a week of contact events in the dance houses of Melbourne. Monday through Thursday events include classes featuring Melbourne teachers past and present, a post-Jam contact film night and a forum on contemporary contact culture.

This is followed by a weekend residential intensive at the Anglesea YMCA from Friday, February 28 to Sunday, March 2. The YMCA is located 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne in tranquil bushland and the beach is a short stroll away.

More details of the Town Program.


– Weeknight classes are $15 – $18 dollars each.
– The residential weekend is $200 including food, accommodation, and tuition.
(The YMCA caters for a wide range of dietary needs)
