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.
