About Us

Performing Arts Research (PAR), formerly known as Centre for Performing Arts Research (CPAR), was set up in 2018 to foster and provide training, education and staff development focusing on Practice-as-Research in the performing arts and related technical arts. It seeks to build a culture of engaging in Practice-as-Research within the Academy through the formation and nurturing of a community of reflective practitioner-thinkers who can contribute to the development of the performing arts and performing arts education in Hong Kong, the Asia Pacific region and beyond. PAR collaborates with the six schools of Chinese Opera, Dance, Drama, Film & Television, Music, and Theatre & Entertainment Arts to embed Practice-as-Research into existing curriculum of both the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes as well as production and performing activities.
