Summersalt Festival

Summersalt Festival

Launching this year, the Summersalt Festival will celebrate the arts over five extraordinary summer weekends. This outdoor arts festival will take place across various locations from the city laneways and courtyards through to the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and Malthouse Theatre. The event includes some of Melbourne’s leading arts organisations such as Melbourne Recital Centre, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Victorian College of Arts, Australian Broadcasting Corporation and many more.

Highlights include:

GENTLE IS THE POWER

“Choreographed by Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk, gentle is the power is an exploration of contained power. Created specifically for, and with, dancers James Vu Anh Pham and Niharika Senapati, gentle is the power merges Van Dijk’s physically challenging movement language with Pham and Senapati’s refined virtuosity.”

NGV SUMMER SUNDAYS

“Spend Sunday afternoons soaking up the sun in Melbourne’s best backyard – the NGV Garden.” Acts include British India DJs, I Oh You Djs, World’s End Press, Clubfeet DJs, Alpine and many more.

THE GIANT OPERA DRESS UP BOX

Dress yourself up in Opera Australia’s elaborate collection of costumes and take to the stage with your character costume.

SCOTCH + SODA 

“A whiskey-soaked evening of raucous dance and dexterous feats – where the bands hold centre stage.” Add the acrobats and you’ve got yourself a show.
