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

Walking With Water will be a weekend of events centering around environmental racism and justice, land sovereignty, and healing the Earth through ancestral spiritual practices. These themes will be explored through life performance, workshops, and multimedia installations.
