Springboard Performance's mandate is to enrich and nourish contemporary physical practices, removing boundaries between genres with clustered festival programming, creative-residencies, creation, workshops, discussions, performances, and outdoor happenings. Springboard is a Calgary-based non-profit society with over 22 years of producing and presenting physical contemporary creation for stage and screen. Springboard continues to inspire and connect artists and audiences by deepening understanding of art and ideas with new ways of seeing and responding to contemporary life. Under the artistic direction of Nicole Mion, Springboard maintains three activities:
· Fluid Movement Arts Festival: contemporary performance and dance festival of regional, national, and international artists.
· Interrarium creation residency: is a multidisciplinary platform for professional local through international artists that explores and reveals contemporary performance practices, held annually at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
· Creation and Dissemination of Artistic Director Nicole Mion’s vision of interdisciplinary performance for stage and screen including dance, theatre, new media and installation.
Springboard Performance enriches contemporary creative practice by deepening artist and audience experiences through a distinct voice in the Canadian cultural landscape. Springboard advances the development of new work and new artistic practices by merging genres and connecting artists with regional through international communities. Springboard sustains our local community though performance and professional development opportunities, and by being committed to excellence and professionalism in its artistic endeavors and administrative practices.
