CPR is a contemporary performance laboratory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn dedicated to providing artists with the time and space to create, develop, and present new work in contemporary dance and performance.
CPR focuses on supporting innovative processes, and works that integrate visual design, installation, and technology, while maintaining a strong focus on environmental responsibility and sustainability.
CPR Presents hosts evening length programs of work by prominent national and international artists who are redefining performance as a contemporary art form and provides opportunities for artists within CPR’s community to present their work in various stages of production. CPR Presents’ initiatives include Performance Studio Open House, New Voices in Live Performance, and Fall and Spring Movement.
CPR’s residency programs support the development and creation of new dance and performance work. Our Andrew W. Mellon Artist-in-Residence program provides 10-15 artists per year with up to 100 hours of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours at advanced booking. Our Technical Residency provides a select artist with one week of access to CPR’s highly flexible performance space and the support of our Technical Director. Artists are invited to apply.
CPR’s rehearsal rental program provides deeply subsidized rehearsal space to artists. Additionally, CPR runs a subsidized performance rental program that offers independent producers a highly flexible and well-equipped performance facility at affordable rates.
