A vast range of preserved ideas of Polish and Central European avant-garde artists, mostly unknown outside their countries, present a reservoir of inspiration, provoking thoughts, ideas and projects referring to the problems that also affect contemporary theatre and performance. As we are highly convinced that the experiences gained one hundred years ago may give new impetus to theatre, and hence the European culture, we will create a series of workshops to recognize and explore, traditions of the prewar era Central and Eastern European avant-garde. Mining the ideas of avant-garde heritage and avant-garde artistic laboratory, we wish to initiate new ways of artistic and scientific cooperation in the field of performance.
