Dance Massive exists as the simultaneous programming of contemporary dance works and associated public and industry events by four Melbourne arts organisations. The Dance Massive consortium: Arts House, Dancehouse and Malthouse Theatre in association with Ausdance Victoria, have a history of programming Australian contemporary dance works for both our Melbourne and Australian audiences. Dance Massive allows the consortium to share resources, collaborate, promote and celebrate contemporary dance under one banner. It helps us make dance, massive.
There is no one Artistic Director for Dance Massive, and each partner programs their own venue. Each venue has a different mechanism for programming during Dance Massive.
Both Malthouse Theatre and Arts House curate their program, and if you are interested in being presented at these venues, please contact them directly.
Dance Massive is supported by Creative Victoria, the Australian Government’s Ministry for the Arts and the Australia Council for the Arts.
