Featured | Current™ ArtSpace + Studio

CURRENT, the newest adventure from Carolina Performing Arts delivers a nearly 7000 square foot space and is located in right in downtown Chapel Hill at the new Carolina Square. CURRENT serves as Carolina Performing Arts’ physical and intellectual home for world class artists-in-residence to collaborate with scientists, researchers, students and the community. 

ArtSpace is a dynamic home for immersive performing arts that do not fit into the traditional theater format. Think interactive, ambitious, innovative and edgy - no two experiences are ever the same.

Designed to be a community creative space for multi-purpose rehearsals, events and performances, the Studio’s interior is viewable from the outside through floor to ceiling windows on three sides. Passersby can peek in to see dance rehearsals, artist’s lectures, and much more.

Six events are planned for the Grand Opening Season. The recent ribbon cutting and tour gave the general public a preview of the space and the types of events that would take place here - such as this Sound Maze, take a look. ..

CURRENT is part of the vision of the UNC Arts Everywhere comprehensive initiative that was established by Chancellor Folt in 2016 and led by Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Arts Emil J. Kang.
