Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA

We are UCLA’s public arts unit for the presentation and scholarship associated with performing arts. The Hammer Museum and the Fowler Museum along with the UCLA Film & Television Archive are our colleague organizations within UCLA. Collectively we serve both the campus community and the greater public through our respective missions and ongoing programming. Center for the Art of Performance is organized within the School of Art & Architecture, and we are located in Royce Hall.

Specifically, we curate and facilitate the direct exposure to the art of performance by supporting acclaimed artists who create extraordinary work in the dedicated practices of contemporary dance, theater and music, in addition to emerging genres. We present their recent works, we add expertise to the creative and scholarly contexts of their artistry, and we do so as a powerful part of UCLA’s mission and legacy.
