Applause are delighted to launch our Outdoor Season 2023 menu.
In the summer of 2023, we are supporting, through commission funds and development awards, 12 professional companies who have created exciting and interactive shows specifically to tour to outdoor events. The new menu includes puppetry, dance, circus, interactive poetry, music and walkabout shows. These shows are engaging and highly entertaining for all ages – perfect for getting communities creative outdoors.
The season also includes two shows co-commissioned with our partners at CREATIVE ESTUARY:Mughal Miniatures Walkabout, with performers creating vibrant and colourful mini-worlds of dance, music and puppetry, and The Allotment Project, a new piece of documentary dance theatre that explores allotments and the communities around them.

CREATIVE ESTUARY has a vision to forge a new future founded on creative energy and innovation, along the length of the Thames Estuary. The project is supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and led by the University of Kent on behalf of a consortium of public sector and cultural organisations. They include the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP), Kent and Essex County Councils, the Greater London Authority, 11 local authority areas represented by Greater North Kent and Opportunity South Essex, South East Creative Economy Network (SECEN), University of Essex, Locate in Kent and cultural organisations Metal and Cement Fields. In early 2019 the University of Kent was awarded £4.3m from the DCMS Cultural Development Fund on behalf of the partners. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport funds the Cultural Development Fund which is administered by Arts Council England.
