Established in 2012, the Center for Performance Research’s Artist-in-Residence program seeks to support a wide range of artists, from emerging to established, working within various perspectives of contemporary dance and performance, and time-based forms.

The AiR program provides rehearsal space, presentation and performance opportunities, curatorial and project support, professional development, and peer dialogue, all of which are designed to support the individualized creative process and an open environment for research, experimentation, embodiment, exchange, and creation.

In an effort to create a more inclusive and equitable selection process, starting with the 2020 cohort, applications are accepted through an open call and are reviewed by a peer committee of artists and community stakeholders. With this approach, CPR aspires to increase visibility, opportunities, and resources for a more diverse range of artists in the field.

CPR is committed to supporting artists from every background with an expansive approach to performance, and at all stages in their creative careers. We strongly encourage artists of color, LGBTQ+ artists, immigrant artists, and artists with disabilities to apply.

Up to 10 AiRs will be selected for a year-long residency (January–December 2022), which provides each AiR with up to 150 subsidized rehearsal hours in CPR’s Large Studio or Small Studio with advance booking privileges, curatorial support, and feedback from CPR staff and fellow artists, access to equipment and production resources, and a $1,000 stipend.

In addition, AiRs will have opportunities to share their current practice with the larger CPR community through public 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.
