6000 to 1

Stompin

Come all-in with Stompin as they explore the anatomy of choice and chance in 6000 to 1.

Using dance, video and sound, this performative journey will analyse a variety of high-stakes scenarios curated by young Tasmanians. 6000 to 1, a reference to Tasmania’s youth suicide statistics, uses the metaphor of a casino and manipulates the concept of time to explore the impact and importance of the choices we make. Place a bet with Stompin and experience the repercussions of real-life situations in a showdown with the notions
of luck, chance, fate and choice.

Stompin creates an environment in which young people grow, as individuals and as citizens, through their connection with dance. Based in Launceston and unique to Australia, Stompin’s performance culture unites non-professional dancers with professional artists to create and present signature works in ordinary and extraordinary places.
