Curated by Lauren DiGiulio

All performances and sessions are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

New Voices in Live Performance invites curators to shape a weekend of performances and events at CPR– Center for Performance Research that highlight creative practices in dance, theater, and performance art. This season will consist of two distinct weekends of work.

(Re)Patterning Performance will bring together artists, curators, and scholars to explore how language can be retooled by the performing body to create new ways of thinking about who can speak, and how. In a series of talks and performances, we will think through methods by which the body can be “re-patterned” to open out into a network of exchange among cultural communities, modes of self, and the ecological environment.
