Performing Arts Division

Phone: 213-202-5508

DCA is relaunching its Performing Arts Division in 2016 and is committed to providing resources to enhance the capacity of performing arts to thrive in the public realm and support music, dance, theater, and performance of all genres, as well as to support organizations, arts programs, individual grants, cultural exchange programs, venues/facilities, presentations, and special projects based on partnership, collaboration, and community investment. DCA currently manages and stewards four city-owned theaters: the Warner Grand Theatre (San Pedro), the Vision Theatre (Leimert Park), the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre (East Hollywood), and the Madrid Theatre (Canoga Park) in addition to overseeing two city-owned, operator-managed theaters: the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center (West Adams, managed by Ebony Repertory Theatre) and the Los Angeles Theatre Center / The NEW LATC (Downtown Los Angeles, managed by the Latino Theater Company). The Performing Arts Division also supports Los Angeles artists through advocacy on a national and international level to enhance our relationships with national touring circuits, for-profit promoters, national service organizations, other government agencies, foreign consulates, and important festivals and cultural centers across the globe.
