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)

    Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
    About the center of the silent Word.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    And no one, it seemed, had had the presence of mind
    To initiate proceedings or stop the wheel
    From the number it was backing away from as it stopped:
    It was performing prettily; the puncture stayed unseen....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Having a thirteen-year-old in the family is like having a general-admission ticket to the movies, radio and TV. You get to understand that the glittering new arts of our civilization are directed to the teen-agers, and by their suffrage they stand or fall.
    Max Lerner (b. 1902)
