Center for Performance Research (CPR) is pleased to announce its 2016 Fall Movement Festival, presenting the works of six artists over three evenings, from November 10-12, at 7:30pm. The artists are Leslie Cuyjet, Eloisa Jaramillo, Elena Rose Light, Ainesh Madan, Leslie Parker, and Nora Stephens. Curated from an open call submission process, the artists and works selected draw from a diverse range of sources to explore how the individual understands their own identity in the context of contemporary Euro-centric Western culture. Through ritual, relational practices, exploration of embodied histories, humor, and manipulations of time and space these artists illustrate the power of performance to create new spaces for connecting and co-existing.  

Fall Movement provides an opportunity for emerging and established choreographers to present works at various stages of development, using CPR’s new state of the art LED theatrical lighting system, procured on CPR’s behalf through the generous support of New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Unique for a theater of its size, CPR is excited to provide artists with advanced technical capabilities as well as space for the development and presentation of their work.

The schedule for the 2016 Fall Movement Festival is as follows:
