CPR - Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, New York is pleased to accept applications for Fall 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 Fall 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 6 will be chosen for presentation during Fall Movement. 
 
If your work is chosen, you will receive two fully produced performances 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 November 5-6 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.

OPEN CALL FOR NYC DANCE FILMS & PERFORMANCE

 

As the 50th anniversary of Stonewall approaches, El Sotano Art Space invites New York based dancers to submit work to this open call. We are looking for work that enacts a revolutions through movement and corporality.

 

Considering the first terrain that we inhabit to be our bodies and from this point all actions that seek revolution and to revolt part from. Thinking of the body as a place where one inhabits and insurrection permeates, the body acts as a terrain where resistance leaves its mark.

 

The purpose of this exhibition is to vocalize and show the different ways in which queer communities and queer individuals enact resistance, revolution and rebellion; from their own corporality, individual and community actions, materialities and performativity. Thinking of queer Revolutions as something that starts in the viscera, sweats through the skin and filters into the streets.
