In our first show of the New Year, BIG is celebrating Inspiration! The Muse floats in the ether looking for an opportunity to strike! Are we open and ready? How do we respond? In the exciting, fun-filled form, How 'Bout This? (created by Jason Geary), the players will uncover what truly tickles and inspires them jumping in head first after ideas that excite, and throwing to the breeze those that do not! Our second act will feature a Freeform improvisation, a range of interlaced dramatic and comedic scenes, inspired by a single suggestion from the audience. You can be sure that, whatever the Muse presents, it will be a night of exciting entertainment!Find out more »

Is it fair to wonder whether Barcelona has two patron saints to squeeze yet another holiday into the annual agenda? The festival of Santa Eulàlia Barcelona dates back to the 3rd century AD, when the young martyr Eulàlia was brutally murdered and martyred as a young child for not refuting her religion. Her statue looks down from the top of Barcelona Cathedral onto the square, which hosts many activities.
A myriad of shows, dances and folkloric performances take place during these festive days of Santa Eulàlia Barcelona. Highlights include the human castles in Plaça St Jaume who reach for the skies on Sunday afternoon. Also on Sunday, the traditional gegants of Ciutat Vella, large sculptures that tower above the shoulders of their bearers, take a twirl in Plaça Reial. One of the most dramatic events will be the correfoc fire-run route which departs from opposite the Cathedral at in the evening. Immerse yourself in the action!

Sacred dance & life practices to awaken feminine wisdom
When Spring comes, it is time for the life which has rested dormant in the bosom of the earth during winter, to slowly re-emerge. In harmony with this natural cycle, it is the right moment for us to let our inner world re-awaken & bloom. It is time to vision clearly our intentions toward creation & manifestation.
Fusing contemporary body science, movement energetics, breath work, seed mantras, circle practices for women, ritual, and mystical eastern dance techniques drawn across time and worlds, this healing experience opens the heart, releases the pelvis, strengthens the core, roots the feet and moves the soul. We dance the trance of release, letting go of what we don’t want to hold in the body; we build inner softness & strength; we listen to our inner voice; we take a journey to release all tension & to connect with inner power. Through the therapeutic practices of this work, we have the opportunity to listen inside slowly & deeply, we have the opportunity to open a golden door within to regenerate our internal feminine forces.
In this workshop we are going to explore the delicate balance between emptiness and fullness, nothingness & our highest potential; we reveal hidden layers of our dormant wisdom, awakening the wise woman - the creator of our deepest dreams, and the highest version of who we envision ourselves to be. We receive keys for integrating ourselves as mystical beings in everyday mundane reality - from the outside, we appear the same as always, but reconnecting to our divine source through these unique practices, we receive a map toward deeper freedom & ecstasy.
Through our collective empowerment as women, we support the healing of our selves & mother earth; we send a gentle, powerful whisper to the world which ripples out the possibility for a new earth consciousness amongst humanity.
