The EEPAP Performative Centre was established as a research and artistic practice laboratory which creates and elaborates the discourse around contemporary performing arts practices. One of the core tasks of the Centre is to build and develop discourse and critical reflection related to contemporary choreographic and performative practices. The program of the Centre consists of research and residency projects, seminars, discussions and workshops with Polish and international creators and theoreticians, always combining critical and artistic practice in the field of contemporary performing arts.
The Centre’s mission is to create a space which enables an open, animated dialogue which is free from market principles and hierarchical academic structures. The Centre’s main goal is to offer artists, thinkers and culture workers time and space to think and practice instead of forcing them to produce a new event, “a cut-and-dried commodity.” The space of the Centre is liberated from the necessity to continually produce new shows, plays, events, premieres and showcases. Instead, the Centre offers a space which is focused on developing choreographic and performing arts practices and, by doing so, on strengthening a critical reflection around them in the social, political and economic context.
The EEPAP Performative Centre is a new initiative by the East European Performing Arts Platform and is curated by Marta Keil.
