BALI PLAY 2015 will run from 10 am to 10pm from Tuesday thru Saturday, hosting workshops in the daytime from 10am-6pm and live music and performances from 7-10pm each night. Because BALI PLAY is nonprofit, teachers, musicians and performers donate their time and talent to the community/festival, but they can use the festival platform to further their choreography, training, networking, and performance skills.  Our vision is simply to gather and play, supporting the local community and Bali’s wonderful art heritage as well as opening new doors for self expression by creating a multi-arts space and giving the opportunity to peoples of all ages and backgrounds to learn more about circus arts and body movement.

Our workshops will offer many disciplines and are also open for anyone to come teach and share a skill in dance, martial arts, music or circus. Workshops in the past included:

 ~ fire spinning

~object manipulation


~aerial and trapeze arts

~ a diverse range of dance

~yoga and acro-yoga



~tai chi

~and many more…

Workshops and performances are open to all ( Gala show excluded for professional performers for Saturday night), so please be in contact and let us know who you are and what you want to contribute by contacting us on the contact page.  In exchange for teaching or performing, BALI PLAY offers free attendance to the days events.

Different classes will come from local Balinese/international schools for an afternoon of fun. If you are a clown, juggler, or if you have any experience in children's games and entertainment, we would love to have you on board.
