Center for Performance Research offers year-long residency in New York City to support artists working within various perspectives of contemporary dance and performance, and time-based forms. Residents receive 150 subsidized rehearsal hours in the facility studios, curatorial support, access to equipment and production resources, a $1,000 stipend, and more.
Up to 10 AiRs will be selected for a year-long residency from January to December 2023, which provides each AiR with up to 150 subsidized rehearsal hours in CPR’s Large Studio or Small Studio with advance booking, curatorial support and feedback from CPR staff and fellow artists, access to technical equipment and production support, and a $1,000 stipend.
AiRs will additionally 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. These public program opportunities come with additional artist fees and resources.
