Stomping Ground, a commissioning group comprised of FABRIC, FESTIVAL.ORG, The Place, Tramway, Strike A Light and presentation partner Sismògraf Festival in Olot, Catalonia, is seeking proposals for bold, original and ambitious dance works made for outdoor spaces.
This opportunity calls for artists interested in making compelling work that can grab the attention and imaginations of audiences through presentations suitable for urban, rural, festival or high street spaces.
The chosen project will receive a £22,500 commission towards an original work to be presented from summer 2024 and beyond.
This year, the commissioning group is delighted to welcome two new partners: Strike A Light and presentation partner Sismògraf Festival in Olot, Catalonia. Taking the lead from the Sismògraf’sconscious, socially and environmentally responsible programming, all applicants for the 2024 commission are invited to consider social and environmental responsibility in the ideas contained in the work, and in the methods of creation & touring. Projects should demonstrate how they relate in a conscious and responsible way to the landscape in which they are made and performed. This can be the physical landscape, and/or the emotional, social or political landscape.
