Springback Magazine keeps artists, programmers, managers and audiences in touch with new and independent dance across Europe.
Founded in 2018, Springback Magazine does things differently. Rather than follow the mainstream, we track the many streams of dance practice, performance and thought, embracing the radical, the grassroots, the current, the crazy and above all the creative. Together, they form a composite picture of European dance today.
We care about our coverage too. In an era of online ephemera, miscellaneous posting and informational overproduction, we place a premium on hands-on editorial guidance for our contributors – for the benefit of the contributors, the magazine and ultimately our readers.
All our contributors come through our annual Springback Academy writing programme.
Springback is more than a magazine. It is part of a wider network that advances thinking and communication about current contemporary dance across Europe, connecting artists, programmers, researchers, thinkers and audiences with dance practices.
- Springback Academy, a mentored programme to nurture dance writers
- Springback Assembly, a forum joining ideas with workshops
- Springback Exploratorium, experimenting with audience engagement
- Be There, bringing audiences to dance platforms online, to reduce monetary and environmental footprints
Members can benefit further from the Springback network through exclusive access to a wealth of online video, on-site translation in 30+ languages, and other rewards.
