New Voices in Live Performance (NViLP) is an annual curatorial program that invites a curator/artist/collective to organize a weekend-long program of public events at CPR in late March. The weekend addresses a particular inquiry within the expanded field of dance and performance, demonstrating a sense of research and serious play around the proposed theme. The events of the weekend are open to the public, and the format of the weekend is left to the selected curator’s discretion — it may include panels, workshops, performances, or other variations on format. Curators are invited to apply by invitation only.
