Open Call: CPR’s 2022 Artist-in-Residence Program






CPR - Center for Performance Research invites all eligible applicants to apply for its 2022 Artist-in-Residence Program.

Application deadline: Tuesday, September 7 at 5:00 PM EST.

Established in 2012, this year-long residency seeks to support a wide range of artists, from emerging to established, working within various perspectives of contemporary dance and performance, and time-based forms. 

CPR’s AiR Program provides rehearsal space, presentation and performance opportunities, curatorial and project support, professional development, and peer dialogue, all of which are designed to support the individualized creative process and an open environment for research, experimentation, embodiment, exchange, and creation.

In an effort to create a more inclusive and equitable selection process, starting with the 2020 cohort, applications are accepted through an open call and are reviewed by a peer committee of artists and community stakeholders. With this approach, CPR aspires to increase visibility, opportunities, and resources for a more diverse range of artists in the field. 

CPR is committed to supporting artists from every background with an expansive approach to performance, and at all stages in their creative careers. We strongly encourage artists of color, LGBTQ+ artists, immigrant artists, and artists with disabilities to apply.

Up to 10 AiRs will be selected for a year-long residency (January–December 2022), which provides each AiR with up to 150 subsidized rehearsal hours in CPR’s Large Studio or Small Studio with advance booking privileges, curatorial support and feedback from CPR staff and fellow artists, access to equipment and production resources, and a $1,000 stipend. 

In addition, AiRs will have opportunities to share their current practice with the larger CPR community through programs such as Sunday Salon, Open Studios, and Performance Philosophy Reading Group, and other opportunities for presentation, community engagement, and creative exchange, in dialogue with CPR’s program staff.


  • Eligible applicants include those who have had their work publicly presented, and have not previously been a CPR Artist-in-Residence.
  • Individual artists, companies, and collaborations or collectives may apply, but each applicant/application will be considered as a single residency.
  • The residency is intended for local artists as CPR does not provide travel or accommodations as part of the residency.
  • Current undergraduate students are not eligible to apply.

CPR occupies a 4,000 square-foot ground floor space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and has two flexible studio spaces. The Large Studio is a 1,875 square-foot, flexible rehearsal, and performance space, outfitted with an LED theatrical lighting system, full-range sound, a sprung marley dance floor and can seat up to 60 people. The Small Studio functions as a rehearsal studio, gallery, and meeting space, and features floor-to-ceiling storefront windows looking out onto the street, track lighting, and a sprung dance floor. CPR is a fully ADA-compliant and accessible venue with two gender-inclusive restrooms and one wheelchair-accessible restroom.

CPR's AiR program is supported directly by Dance/NYC’s New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, an initiative made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; the National Endowment for the Arts; and the New York State Council on the Arts; in addition to support from CPR’s major funders and generous individual donors. 

Applications will be accepted until September 7, 2021, at 5:00pm EST. We expect to send notifications in September 2021 and to announce the 2022 AiR cohort in October 2021.

The panel looks forward to reviewing your application! Email us at with any questions.

Rock Band with Deerhoof





CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
Workshop dates: 06/10/2021 - 2021-10-11
Labelled by Pitchfork as "the best band in the world" and the New York Times as "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade", Deerhoof is Greg Saunier, Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez. Kicking off in San Francisco in the mid-90s, the band have evolved through lineups and styles, tirelessly probing the outer limits of rock, pop and noise. They've toured with Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beck, curated Sonic City festival in Belgium, headlined Big Ears Festival, and released over 20 albums. Like Pitchfork said, best band in the world. Meanwhile, the institutions of modern music academia have slowly but surely focused their gaze on the band - Deerhoof's genre irreverance, unbridled invention and unique approach to ensemble playing cannot be ignored as a valuable asset of the avant-garde.

This workshop is an opportunity to spend five days in the epic Pyrenean mountains with Deerhoof, learning, discussing, developing your playing, building new musical connections and opening your rock band mind. It's about playing technique, improvisation, collaboration, composition, space, interaction and listening - all the things that make an ensemble work. Over five days, a small group of adventurous players will split down into ensembles, develop playing techniques and musical interaction skills, building new work every day under the guidance of the four members of Deerhoof, ending each day with a performance and feedback session. In the downtime we'll hang out, listen to music, watch films, drink wine, swim in the river and hike in the forests and peaks of the Pyrenees.

The workshop is open to people of all musical abilities, and players of all instruments (including traditional rock band stuff but also computers, field recordings or anything else). Throughout the workshop our extensive recording facilities will be available for use, and we'll work towards gathering recordings for a final release on CAMP Editions.
