Center for Performance Research Welcomes Six Artists for Fall Movement 2015 This Weekend

Center for Performance Research (CPR) is pleased to announce its 2015 Fall Movement Festival, presenting the works of six artists over three evenings, from this weekend, November 12-14 at 7:30pm. The artists are Mirenka Chechova, Doug LeCours, In Kyung Lee, Johnnie Cruise Mercer, Suzan D. Polat, and Paul Singh.

Curated from an open call submission process, the artists and works selected draw from a diverse range of sources to explore the exchanges between bodies and architecture, performer and audience, and the limits of representation.

Fall Movement provides an opportunity for emerging and established choreographers to present works at various stages of development, using CPR's new state of the art LED theatrical lighting system, procured on CPR's behalf through the generous support of New York City's Department of Cultural Affairs and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Unique for a theater of its size, CPR is excited to provide artists with advanced technical capabilities as well as space for the development and presentation of their work.

The schedule for the 2015 Fall Movement Festival is as follows:

Thursday November 12:
