The Big Bounce was an evening mini-festival held as part of PACT’s Salon Series in 2017.
Matt Cornell was invited to curate the event and his hope became that participants could “learn some dancing, watch some dancing, talk about some dancing and just do some dancing.”
notes from Matt:
Dancing really does something; to us, between us, and in the world.
It gives our bodies back to us; doing it together empowers us beyond individualism, sharing space and time.
Dancing is cellular and global, dancing is a thinking and an act of zooming all the way into nothing and all the way out to everything
