THE SPRINGBOARD PROJECT
A NEW PROGRAM TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF DANCE-DRIVEN MUSICALS.
Letters of Inquiry now being accepted for the 2017 pilot program.
The Jerome Robbins Foundation is pleased to introduce The SPRINGBOARD Project: Fostering Collaboration in Dance-Driven Musical Theater.
Designed to encourage collaborations in which choreography plays an integral part in the conception and creation of new musical projects, the Springboard Project will launch a pilot program in 2017. Two creative teams in early conceptual stages of a new musical will be selected to participate in the program and will receive a fully supported three-week development residency with stipends for the creative team, up to 12 performers, a music director, stage manager, and dramaturg. The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center and the Baryshnikov Arts Center will each host one of the projects.
