2020 Artist-in-Residence Application
CPR - Center for Performance Research's Artist-in-Residence Open Call 2020

Please be sure to read through the application description and criteria in its entirety before applying.

CPR - Center for Performance Research invites all eligible applicants to apply for our Artists-in-Residence Program 2020.* CPR’s AiR Program seeks to support a wide range of artists from emerging choreographers to established companies, working within the various aspects of dance and performance. From subsidized rehearsal space, to a diverse array of performance and community engagement opportunities, CPR provides AiRs with an open environment for research and development of new dance work.

CPR’s 2020 AiR Program provides 10 artists with 150 deeply subsidized rehearsal hours each, to be used in CPR’s small and/or large studio, with advance booking privileges. AiRs will also receive a stipend of $1,000. They will have the opportunity to participate in CPR’s Sunday Salon, a performance series that provides a platform for AiRs to share their current practice with the larger CPR and NYC dance communities. There will also be several informal opportunities for community engagement: CPR AiRs are invited to host a Performance Philosophy Reading Group with CPR's Director, and receive complimentary time in the large studio to share their practice with other AiRs. The residency program will run January-December 2020.

Since its inception in 2012 with the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CPR’s AiR Program has provided up to 15 artists per year (selected by invitation) with 100 hours of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours at advanced booking. In an effort to create a more inclusive and equitable selection process, we are piloting an open call application by a peer artist committee this year. The committee will review applications, and through a scoring and discussion process, select CPR’s AiRs for 2020. Using this approach, CPR aspires to increase visibility, opportunities, and resources for a diverse range of artists in the dance field.

CPR's AiR program is supported by Dance/NYC’s New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, an initiative made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional funds generously provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

*Eligible applicants include those who have had their dance work publicly presented, and have not been CPR AiRs more than once.
Applications will be accepted until 11:59pm on October 4, 2019. Email programs@cprnyc.org with any questions.

The panel looks forward to reviewing your application.

With best wishes,

CPR - Center for Performance Research Staff
