Description

OntheBoards.tv is an on-demand website for HD-quality contemporary performance films available for streaming, download or mobile viewing. Launched in January 2010, this first-of-its-kind site brings contemporary work to a wider public by filming top caliber performances with multiple high-definition cameras, editing the film collaboratively with the artists, and delivering them online as feature-length performance films. OntheBoards.tv has more than doubled in size with plans to continue adding multiple new performance films each year. Filmed at On the Boards, as well as in peer theaters across the country, the performances present a snapshot of the best new works by current leaders in dance, theater and music. The films consist of compelling international and northwest contemporary performance, including works by artists who are rarely seen in the US and works that will never be performed again.

Initial Funding for OntheBoards.tv provided by The Wallace Foundation. With additional support from: DanceUSA, National Endowment for the Arts, The Paul G. Allen Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation
