Performing Arts Center

Performing Arts Center

Performing arts center/centre (see spelling differences), often abbreviated as PAC, is used to refer to:

  • A multi-use performance space that is intended for use by various types of the performing arts, including dance, music and theatre.
The intended multiple use of performing arts centers in this sense differentiates them from single-purpose concert halls, opera houses or theatres, although the actual use of single-purpose spaces for other than their intended use is of course widespread.
  • A cluster of performance spaces, usually but not always under one roof, each possibly designed for a specific purpose such as symphonic music or chamber music or theatre, but multi-purpose as a whole.
An example of this type of PAC is the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. which contains four distinctive performance spaces.

Some performing arts center organizations act as sole presenter for events using the venues within the center, but most also frequently rent their performance spaces to other performing arts presenters or self-presenting performing arts groups. Examples of this practice are the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. renting venues in the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts or the Celebrity Series of Boston renting venues in Boston's Citi Performing Arts Center.

Famous quotes containing the words performing arts, center, performing and/or arts:

    More than in any other performing arts the lack of respect for acting seems to spring from the fact that every layman considers himself a valid critic.
    Uta Hagen (b. 1919)

    Whether talking about addiction, taxation [on cigarettes] or education [about smoking], there is always at the center of the conversation an essential conundrum: How come we’re selling this deadly stuff anyway?
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    When performing an autopsy, even the most inveterate spiritualist would have to question where the soul is.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    For me, the principal fact of life is the free mind. For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances, new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.
    Joyce Cary (1888–1957)
