The Collaborative Radically Integrated Performers Society in Edmonton (CRIPSiE) is an integrated dance company based out of Edmonton that aims to make dance and other forms of art accessible for all–both for the artists who create and perform the art as well as the audience.

We are a diverse group of individuals with differing backgrounds and places in life that come together to form a community of artists. CRIPSiE is led by an artist collective, the artistic associates, who work collectively to lead and enact the artistic vision of our company and the artists we serve.
