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)

    The greatest part of each day, each year, each lifetime is made up of small, seemingly insignificant moments. Those moments may be cooking dinner...relaxing on the porch with your own thoughts after the kids are in bed, playing catch with a child before dinner, speaking out against a distasteful joke, driving to the recycling center with a week’s newspapers. But they are not insignificant, especially when these moments are models for kids.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    Do you see that kitten chasing so prettily her own tail? If you could look with her eyes, you might see her surrounded with hundreds of figures performing complex dramas, with tragic and comic issues, long conversations, many characters, many ups and downs of fate,—and meantime it is only puss and her tail.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Eliot dead, you saying,
    “And who is left to understand my jokes?
    My old Brother in the arts . . . and besides, he was a smash of
    poet.”
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)
