Welcome

Encouraging intercultural dialogue
through the arts

The Center for World Performance Studies (CWPS) seeks to unite artists, performers, scholars and the community through the international language of the arts. The center provides a platform for artistic inspiration and scholarly dialogue about the importance and meaning of performance around the world. Through its work, CWPS strives to bridge the gap between performance and scholarship, increase knowledge of performing arts around the globe, bring into intellectual focus the increasing globalization of the performing arts, and take advantage of the interdisciplinary opportunities at the University of Michigan.
