Profile Information

What I do:
The Centre for Performance Research (CPR) is a pioneering and 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 and maintains an archive on contemporary Welsh 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.

The Centre for Performance Research (CPR) was established in Cardiff in 1988, by Richard Gough and Judie Christie. CPR's predecessor was Cardiff Laboratory Theatre, which began in 1974.

Hi Helen. Can't believe I've only just seen your post re The Night Pirates. Profuse apologies for not replying sooner. Delighted that your family enjoyed it. We had lots of lovely feedback from families & it sold really well so we're reviving it in May. It's touring as well as doing 2 weeks at the Unicorn. Sadly I don't think it's coming to Wales again. I'll pass your comments to the company who I know will be thrilled. Hope all's well with you and CPR is able to find ways to continue it's work. Kevin and I were talking only yesterday about the fantastic workshop with Phelim McDermott. All best wishes, Sarah

Hi Helen, good to hear from you.

I'm quite often up in Aber in the summer months so will keep an eye out for what's going on.

Take care,

Bethan x
