Premiere at Mona Foma, Launceston

Deeply embedded in our society is the practice of consumerism. The social thrill of shopping with friends and the pride associated with brand names and heavy price tags are popular conversations between millennials. However, there are some socially aware young people out there, concerned with swiftly changing trends, outfits with 24-hour life expectancies, and obsession with possession. Stompin’s young dancers are wondering, how much is too much?


Stompin began in Launceston in 1992 with the idea that when young people collaborate with professional artists they can create inspiring, bold and relevant new dance works. Stompin involves young people in every aspect of our creative process from conception to realisation and shifts dance out of traditional performance venues into atypical landscapes.

Each year Stompin produce one major, large-scale, site-specific dance work. This show is developed over several months in collaboration between professional artists and a cast of Tasmanian young people.
