Performing Arts Center
The vision for a campus-based arts district of shared facilities and spaces undergirds Brown University’s long-term goals for cultivating creative expression among its community members. Integral to this vision is a new, centrally located Performing Arts Center (PAC) that will support cross-departmental needs. Serving as a hub for music, dance, theater and multimedia arts, it will house a large, flexible performance space capable of transforming from a concert hall to an intimate stage for small ensembles to a cube for immersive sound and projection, all with variable acoustics to match every configuration. The PAC will also feature a smaller performance and rehearsal space; a dance studio; an acting studio; student practice rooms and instrument storage; plus dressing rooms, green room, storage, control rooms, machinery pits and offices for staff. The new center is slated for completion in spring 2022.
