CPR Presents: Spring Movement 2020

Performance Dates: April 9, 10, and 11, 2020


CPR - Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, New York is pleased to accept applications for Spring Movement 2020. Spring Movement is a three night festival of dance and performance, featuring finished works from 6 choreographers. Each artist 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.

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. 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. International artists require a valid visa to participate.

If you would like to be a part of Spring Movement 2020, please fill out the following application form. Pieces proposed for presentation should be no more than 15 minutes in length, including any setup or breakdown. 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. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of peer artists, and 6 will be chosen for presentation during Spring Movement.

In order to apply, artists must be available for all the following events:

Production Meeting: Monday, March 2nd (5pm-7pm)
Technical Rehearsal: Monday, April 6 - Wednesday, April 8 (in the evening)
Performances: Thursday, April 9 - Saturday, April 11 (in the evening)

DEADLINE: All applications must be received by January 26, 2020 by 11:59pm EST.

Email applications@cprnyc.org with any questions.

We are looking forward to reviewing your application!

With best wishes,
The CPR Staff
