On November 1st 2023, Codarts' new Performance Lab was festively opened by Lorenzo Viotti, chief conductor of the Dutch National Opera and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Codarts Performance Lab is an innovative simulation lab that uses images and sound to simulate a performance on stage. In the lab, stressful performances, auditions or presentations can be practiced in a safe but realistic environment. In short, a valuable new training opportunity for students to work on performances that involve stress.

The Performance Lab is an initiative of the Performing Arts Medicine professorship and Codarts' Student Life student support programme, aimed at structurally investigating and optimising the physical and mental health of performing artists, students, athletes and patients.

After the opening of the Performance Lab, Lorenzo Viotti gave an exclusive, interactive masterclass in Rotterdam's Kunsthal to a group of 200 Codarts students and teachers in which he shared his own experiences with the theme of performing under pressure.

The masterclass was organized in honor of Codarts Student Life's 10th anniversary.
