LOCATED IN WALES working nationally and internationally FOR THE CURIOUS opening worlds of performance
The Centre for Performance Research (CPR) is a multi-faceted theatre organisation located and rooted in Wales, working nationally and internationally. CPR produces innovative performance work: arranges workshops, conferences, lectures and masterclasses (for the professional, the amateur and the curious); curates and produces festivals, expositions and exchanges with theatre companies from around the world; publishes and distributes theatre books, as well as the journal Performance Research, and houses a resource centre and library that specializes in world theatre and performance.
CPR aims to develop and improve the knowledge, understanding and practice of theatre in its broadest sense, to affect change through investigation, sharing and discovery and to make this process as widely available as possible. Its programmes of work combine cultural co-operation, collaboration and exchange practical training, education and research, performance, production and promotion, documentation and publishing, information and resource.
CPR was established in Cardiff in 1988, by Richard Gough and Judie Christie. CPR's predecessor was Cardiff Laboratory Theatre, which began in 1974.
