at CPR – Center for Performance Research


FAILSPACE, in partnership with CPR – Center for Performance Research, offers monthly workshops that are process-based weekly gatherings and ask the community to think expansively about what class looks like and how we take class. We work with our faculty to curate four experiences that immerse the cohort inside their creative process. In the weeks leading up to the workshop, FAILSPACE works with the faculty to refine the language of their teaching practice, provide marketing materials, and develop a marketing strategy to build a cohort of peers for the month. 

FAILSPACE provides multiple platforms for emerging artists interested in live performance to grow their teaching practice among their peers. These platforms include our monthly workshop series in partnership with the Center for Performance Research, our Mentorship Workshop series, and our performance platform PARTY. FAILSPACE is organized by a Steering Committee that includes Andrew Pester, Rebecca Fitton, Angel Acuña, Pablo Muñoz, Lena Engelstein, and Nora Alami.
