Big Thick Energy is the brain-child of performance artist and booty manipulator Demon Derriere and has been curated to promote body positivity and liberation through movement, creativity and community.
Our variety festival will feature 10 skill-sharing workshops, local artisan markets and 3 evenings of high-energy entertainment with thick, curvy performance artists breaking stereotypes and celebrating self-love.
Featuring Burlesque, Drag, Vogue, Poetry Slam, Freak Show and Music, Big Thick Energy is a safe inclusive space for IBPOC and LGBTQIA+ bodies.
Grab yourself a one or 2-day festival pass (or dabble with a one-off workshop) and join us at Darlo to express yourself in a safe, inclusive and accessible space where judgement, stereotypes and discrimination are abolished and you can celebrate the skin you’re in.
All festival events will be Auslan interpreted.
