The Performative Centre which was initiated owing to the collaboration of East European Performing Arts Platform (EEPAP) and the Centre for Culture in Lublin acts as a multinational lab combining research and art. The activities are aimed to focus on contemporary performing arts which explore social, political and economic issues. One of the key objectives of the Centre is to develop a discourse and strengthen a critical reflection on the contemporary choreography and theatre practices.
The Centre program, which is based on the theoretical perspective constantly merging with artistic practices, will include research and residency projects, seminars, debates and workshops featuring foreign artists and theoreticians.
