CRIPSiE (The Collaborative Radically Integrated Performers Society in Edmonton) are an Edmonton-based collective of artists that include people who experience disability and their allies. We challenge dominant stories of disability and other forms of oppression, through high-quality crip and mad performance art, video art, and public education and outreach programs.

Call for applications to CRIPSiE's emerging choreographers' program
Do you want to make disability, crip, Mad or integrated dance/performance? Would you like support and mentorship to do this? Send your ideas to CRIPSiE’s emerging choreographers’ program! We will support two artists to make new 3-7 minute performances for our show in November 2018. We will offer rehearsal space in Edmonton, training, feedback, logistical support, help finding performers, and artist fees. We will try to build a schedule that works for everyone. Starting in February (or later), you should plan to spend between 20-30 hours in rehearsal for your work, plus full-show rehearsals and performances in fall 2018.
Applications are due: Monday, November 20, 2017

1) a description of your idea for your dance or
2) why you think CRIPSiE is a good fit to support

performance (not necessary, but helpful), or
anything else you would like to share about
4) the number of people you would like to work
NOTE: we encourage solos, duets and trios based on limited resources at this time
