About Us

PUBLIC ENERGY

Vision
Public Energy sparks the curiosity and passion that only occurs when risk-taking artists and diverse audiences meet.

Mission
Public Energy is a cultural catalyst, electrifying the community with powerful dance, performance, and theatre.

What we do
Public Energy is an animator of contemporary dance, theatre, performance, and interdisciplinary work.  We are dedicated to supporting the creation, touring, and presentation of innovative contemporary performing arts, and to developing audiences that are knowledgeable and passionate.

As a presenter, Public Energy programs both well-known artists and new artists; develops audiences through a variety of activities including talks, lectures, pre-show chats, artist residencies, and curated programming; participates in national initiatives that move dance forward, such as the CanDance Creation Fund and the CanDance Touring Exchange; commissions and co-commissions new work from significant artists and commits to their presentation; serves as a venue and touring destination for artists; and supports new work and new directions for artists through residencies, and financial and administrative support.

Formerly known as Peterborough New Dance, since 1994 we have presented a mainstage series of dance companies and independent choreographers drawn from across Canada, commissioned new work in concert with other Canadian presenters on the CanDance Network, and supported the development of the local dance, theatre and performance community by presenting area artists and arranging specialized classes and workshops.
