Performance Platform Lublin 2023
Lublin, Galeria Labirynt

About festival

In 2023, Lublin became the European Youth Capital, we want it to also become the capital of performance!

Performance Platform Lublin, which has been held in Lublin since 2009 is an international festival dedicated to the art of performance. This year, we have decided to open the festival to young artistists – up to the age of 30. The festival events will take place at Galeria Labirynt, one of the most important venues in the history of performance art in Poland. The festival will be filled with the creative energy of young people who will be able to meet in Lublin to creatively improve their skills with the support of experienced tutors.

The three festival days will be filled with presentations by filmmakers, screenings of video performances, workshops, a social media off programme, as well as meetings and discussions with festival participants. In the evenings, we invite you to artistic get-togethers to get to know each other better and make contacts for the future.

The festival has no theme or slogan – what is important to us is the presentation of artistic attitudes. The narratives create themselves – as a result of the extraordinary energy of the meeting of people experiencing art happening here and now. We focus on performance art as well as on activities beyond classical performance; we are not interested in proposals for ready-made theatre performances.

We invite you to send in your applications to participate in PPL 2023!
