Performance Dates: April 4, 5, and 6, 2019
CPR - Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, New York is pleased to accept applications for Spring Movement 2019. CPR invites applications from artists working within the various aspects of dance and performance, as well as pieces that incorporate technological and visual art elements. Please keep in mind CPR has a LED repertory plot, projection capabilities and a full sound system. No additional equipment can be provided. Pieces proposed for presentation should be no more than 15 minutes in length, including any setup or breakdown. CPR loves to host artists from outside of New York, but cannot pay for any travel costs or help with accommodations in NYC at this time. If you would like to be a part of Spring Movement 2019, please fill out the following application form. Please note that incomplete applications will not be accepted. Limit one submission per applicant. We strongly suggest applying with a video of the proposed work (even if it is rehearsal footage). However, a video of an alternative work will be accepted.
We only accept continuous footage from a single work; please do not submit a performance or choreography reel. We can only accept video samples shared via online video sites such as Vimeo, YouTube, etc. Please make sure that the link works properly before submitting your application, and include cue points for all videos, noting that panelists will likely only watch 1-2 minutes of footage.
In order to apply, artists need to be available to perform any of the three nights of the festival, as we cannot accommodate specific scheduling requests. Submissions will be reviewed by CPR Staff and artistic advisors, and 10-12 will be chosen for presentation during Spring Movement. If your work is chosen, you will receive one fully produced performance in CPR’s theater space during the course of the three night festival. CPR will provide a small honorarium to the selected choreographers. This performance will include the support of CPR’s technical and production staff, as well as full marketing support. Selected artists will have one technical rehearsal between April 1-3 in the evening. You may state a preference, but need to make every attempt to be available for any of these nights. Participating artists will be entitled to two complimentary tickets for the night of their performance. DEADLINE: All applications must be received via email by February 1, 2019 by 11:59pm EST.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We are looking forward to reviewing your application!
With best wishes,The CPR Staff
