Chichester University has a longstanding commitment to dance and the performing arts at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The ShowRoom’s role as a receiving venue and a teaching space reflects the Universities work in this area.
The ShowRoom is an important marker on the contemporary arts map – for both touring work and as a place where artists and audiences can meet at the exciting point when work is being developed.
The ShowRoom presents contemporary dance and performance by the best touring companies working on a small scale. Alongside ‘finished’ pieces, the venue has a commitment to providing a space where artists can test and experiment to create unique experiences.
