CAP UCLA showcases the power of dance, music, spoken word, and theater throughout Los Angeles.
The Center for the Art of Performance (CAP UCLA) is a magnet and a source for all that’s exciting and intriguing in live performance.
In 1937, its first series in Royce Hall boasted the great contralto Marian Anderson, the Budapest String Quartet, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Since then, its guests have ranged from Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra to Twyla Tharp and Mikhail Baryshnikov. CAP UCLA has hosted performances by some of the world’s most revered and influential musicians, dramatists and choreographers, including Robert Wilson, Philip Glass and Trisha Brown.
CAP UCLA’s influence reaches far beyond the campus. Whether bringing in resident artists to teach master classes or perform for thousands of K-12 students through its Design for Sharing program, CAP UCLA cultivates the creative exchange needed for the arts to thrive and support a culturally literate society.
And its influence keeps growing: UCLA recently acquired Westwood’s Crest Theater and will return the historic site to its performing arts roots as the UCLA Nimoy Theater, an intimate, off-campus venue for UCLA academic departments and student organizations, as well as local and national cultural and community partners.
CAP UCLA recently launched a campaign to raise the funds necessary to meet a $2.5 million challenge from an anonymous donor to support the theater’s renovation and to establish an operating endowment for future programs.
