Compass Commissions was The Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership’s flagship artist development scheme.

From 2012 - 2018 we supported selected UK-based artists throughout the process of creation.

The programme enabled innovative concepts to thrive by offering a unique set of resources: cash funds, extensive creation space, advice and production development support.

Performances from the artists welcomed new and existing audiences and raised the standards of productions available for national and international touring.

The Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership project, Compass Commissions, ran from 2012 to 2018. This strand saw 15 new productions through from concept to premiere, focusing on the creation of new works for a range of audiences. 

The Commissions were supported by a minimum of £3,000 commission fee, rehearsal facilities at Greenwich Dance or Trinity Laban, including production time and technical support. As well as sharing and performance opportunities. 


Details about the artist’s work and distribution beyond the partnership intervention will follow soon.
