Fully Connected is a digitally based community engagement project running alongside Stompin's 2017 major work, Fully Grown. Fully Grown will be presented as a part of Ten Days on the Island, Tasmania's international arts festival in March 2017. The show invites audiences into Launceston's City Park Conservatory where dance and mutlimedia tell the story of evolution from the big bang to present day and beyond.
This project will take us on a journey to discover and explore the unseen connections within our community throughout Stompin's 25 years.
A weekly accumulation of personal and community 'universes' presented in the form of stories, lessons, histories, journeys and hopes of our Dancers, Artistic Directors, Staff, Producers, Volunteers, supporters and community members. Fully Connected will look back on our grass-roots, share the present and peer into the future.
Fully Connected is rich, mutlilayered, open, deep, exciting, funny and surprising- it's a way to learn about our collective past and how Stompin has connected so many, locally, nationally, internationally and dare we say, universally.

It all begun in 1992. Stompin's founder, Jerril Retcher wrote her first ever grant on a "borrowed Macintosh Classic personal computer". She received $500 from Arts Tasmania and with that, Stompin was born!
