Centre for Contemporary Performing Arts

 Centre for Contemporary Performing Arts


The Centre addresses current topics in contemporary performing arts in various cultures, both in the West and elsewhere, through composition, performance and musicology using state-of-the-art technology. The Centre's impetus originates from a desire to provide links between different research activities in contemporary performing arts to create a dynamic musical community. The Centre aims to provide opportunities to invigorate a range of interdisciplinary research activities: study days, conferences, festivals, projects, workshops and seminars. The Centre also supports the activities of the Durham Gamelan Group.
