Fall Movement is an opportunity for artists to present new work in dance, performance, and time-based art in a shared program, and is curated by an independent panel of artists through an Open Call. The program will be presented at CPR on December 6 and 7, 2024 at 7:00 PM.

Individual artists, collectives, and companies may propose a live performance work that is 15-20 minutes in length. CPR encourages applicants to submit work with experimental approaches to content, form, and aesthetic, and values risk-taking and the unexpected.

CPR is committed to supporting artists from every background, at various stages of their artistic careers, and across generations, and maintains an expansive approach to performance. We strongly encourage BIPOC artists, LGBTQ+ artists, immigrant artists, and artists with disabilities to apply.

Please be sure to read through the program details and application criteria in its entirety before submitting your application. We strongly recommend drafting narrative responses in a separate document. 


Fall Movement will take place at CPR on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7, 2024 at 7:00 PM. Five works will be selected and presented on both evenings. Each selected work will receive a 2-hour technical rehearsal with CPR production staff, 2 hours of complimentary rehearsal time in one of CPR's studios (based on availability), and an honorarium of $350.


Individual artists, collectives, or companies may apply, but each applicant/application will be considered as a unique project, and will receive a single honorarium of $350.

While Fall Movement is not limited to NYC-based artists, CPR cannot provide US visas, travel, accommodations, or other living expenses in connection with the presentation.

Current undergraduate students are not eligible to apply.

Artists who have been presented in Fall Movement or Spring Movement at CPR within the last 5 five years may not apply.


CPR's theater (also known as the Large Studio) has white walls and a sprung wooden floor covered by white marley, with a playing space that is 45 ft wide by 26 ft deep, and is outfitted with an LED theatrical lighting system, full-range sound, and projection capabilities. The house seats up to 65 people. We are open to unique ways of using CPR's space and a variety of formats, including proposals for the Small Studio/Storefront Gallery (45 ft x 15 ft) for installation-based work, which would override the 15-20 minute length requirement. CPR is a fully ADA-compliant and accessible venue with two all gender restrooms and one wheelchair-accessible restroom. A floor plan, images, and technical specifications can be found at www.cprnyc.org/spaces.


Applications will be accepted until Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 5:00pm EST.

We expect to send notifications in August 2024 and to announce the program in September 2024 along with the announcement of CPR's 2024 Fall Season

Please email applications@cprnyc.org with any questions. The panel looks forward to reviewing your application!
