Founded by artists in 1978, the mission of On the Boards is to introduce Northwest audiences to international innovators in contemporary dance, theater and music while developing and presenting new work by performing artists in the region.
On the Boards strives to present new works, programming approximately 15 residencies per year from September through June. We present contemporary performance from all disciplines: dance, music, theater, performance art, multimedia and new media. Typically, companies are in residence for one week. Production residencies and commissions are considered on a case-by-case basis. On the Boards has two venues: a 300-seat main stage and a 90-seat studio black-box. We also create and distribute films of full-length performance through our OntheBoards.tv initiative.
