CRIPSiE, The Collaborative Radically Integrated Performers Society in Edmonton, is committed to fostering high quality, creative, anti-oppressive and inclusive art practices and performances. CRIPSiE has assumed iDANCE Edmonton’s performance portfolio, and builds upon their seven years of vibrant integrated dance experience. We are a non-profit arts organization run by artists who experience disability or other forms of oppression, and by their artistic and political allies.
