Performing Life Akademia Network [PLANT] is a 2-year transdisciplinary project, funded by Creative Europe Programme, that aims to encourage the development and experimentation of contextual artistic and curatorial practices around cross-performing arts, eco-thinking and everyday life. PLANT is a collaboration between three research and creation centres: CRL – Central Elétrica in Porto (PT) – project coordinator –, Isadora & Raymond Duncan Dance Research Center in Vyronas, Athens (GR) and Espai nyamnyam in Mieres, Girona (SP).
