The Centre for Interdisciplinary Performative Arts (CIPA) is a newly established practice-led research centre for the study of innovative and multi-media performative practices, based in the Faculty of Arts, Design and Media at Birmingham City University, UK.

CIPA aims to connect interdisciplinary performing arts, and to link with faculty staff, creative industries, research funders, partner institutions and universities at a regional, national and international level.

The research centre, led by Director Aleksandar Saša Dundjerović, works across many areas of live performance, particularly theatre, drama and applied arts such as music, dance, visual arts, multimedia, digital arts, scenography and installation.

CIPA members are committed to making a significant contribution to Birmingham City University, Birmingham and the wider society, using their artistry and scholarship to produce new knowledge in interdisciplinary performative practices.
