About cfpa

Center for Performing Arts is a community built by artists, for artists, teachers, students, audiences, and neighbors of many interests and traditions to assemble and to develop their work. We are dedicated to the vitality of the creative process. We are guided by the principle that art practice is stronger when it grows in context with divergent approaches and points of view. We support a range of practitioners to teach, learn, workshop, and practice, in order to sustain their work and their lives as creative and contributing members of their communities.

cfpa’s programming aims to connect all kinds of audiences, artists, experiences, and stories. Our events explore the vitality and evolution of American identity, and the ways in which creative works reflect our lived experience (or not). Our events grapple with the stories we hear and see, the stories we make and tell, and the ways in which we are (or are not) changed by creative representations of our experiences. We support artists who engage fiercely with the complex and contradictory nature of the human experience. We support audiences who yearn for greater personal engagement between works of art and the daily life of our community. We assemble for lively questions, dynamic conversation, and to encourage new ways of understanding each other’s lives.
