Performative Centre is a research and artistic practice laboratory which creates and elaborates discourse around contemporary performing arts practices. The Centre’s mission is to create a space which enables an open, animated dialogue, not subordinated to the market principles and free from hierarchical academic structures. The program will consist of research and residency projects, seminars, discussions, and workshops, always combining theory and practice in the field of contemporary performing arts. This is an initiative of EEPAP and the Centre for Culture in Lublin, Poland and is curated by Marta Keil.
