Performing arts as Dance, Theater, and Music are considered by UNESCO as part of the intangible cultural heritage. There is a branch called independent performing arts that refers to performing arts outside of the commercial and official circuit. Independent performing arts are characterized by being produced with reduced infrastructure and economic resources.
