About Performance Books

We stock all of your essential performance course books and specialise in sourcing performance related books that are not easily available in book shops: imports; illustrated books; texts in other languages; monographs on individual artists or performance companies and experiments in performance documentation, writing and publishing.

We also run performance bookstalls at theatre and performance conferences e.g. SCUDD and Performance Studies International (Psi). If your organization would like a friendly, efficient and well-stocked performance bookshop at a conference or special event, then please get in touch.

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.

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.
