Call for Artists

CPR's Artist-in-Residence Open Call 2020

CPR - Center for Performance Research’s Artist-in-Residence (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. 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.


There is a striking photograph of a camel caravan taken from above.  At first glance you see dark animals and riders in the bright sunset the color of sand.  On closer inspection you see tiny well-lit camels and riders with the strength of the image in the tall dark shadows cast in the setting sun. In the same vein, dusk casts shadows on a flight of stairs creating a canvas of black and white stripes.  Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the tile pattern on the Sydney Opera House, rows of theater chairs etc. Different images, interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well.  Be creative - send us your best.
