Norman Armour is a Vancouver-based curator and artist.
Since graduating from SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts in 1986, he has collaborated on over 100 projects for the stage and other media. Norman co-founded Rumble Productions, a mainstay of Vancouver’s independent theatre scene. During his 15-year tenure, the company’s mission embraced the creation and presentation of new works, innovative adaptations of classics, site-specific and large-scale interdisciplinary events, dance/theatre collaborations, live-remote radio broadcasts, and the aspirations of young artists.
In 2003, he co-founded the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival and has been its Artistic and Executive Director since 2006. An annual, three-week, mid-winter festival, PuSh engages Vancouver audiences and artists with adventurous contemporary performance, while promoting cultural exchange and development.
Norman is the recipient of numerous awards, including Simon Fraser University’s Distinguished Alumni, City of Vancouver’s Mayor’s Arts and Civic Merit awards, and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
