"Among the year's best arts events, period." So says CityBeat about the CAC's Performance Program. From the experimental and provocative to Grammy and Pulitzer winning performers.

Performance Series 2018-2019

This year is one of elevated possibility for performing arts at the CAC. In April 2019, we launch a new proposal dubbed This Time Tomorrow; a festival rooted in contemporary performance that endeavors to highlight both incredible artists from around the world, and those creating visionary projects closer to home. By placing each in closer conversation with the other, we'll strive to more deeply explore what is shared, and celebrate what is distinct.

But have no fear – the CAC performance series is still going strong! We've sharpened the season to offer six standout contemporary performances by visiting artist from across the globe. As you've come to expect from the CAC, these performances promise entirely new audience experiences, offering diverse ways to encounter works that are as heterogeneous and complex as the world in which they are created.
