The Archive of Knowledge is a tool for documenting different phases of the artistic work, theatrical laboratory know-how and craft.

Archive of Knowledge

Is a web platform which presents a collection of materials and documents, which describe the laboratory theatre production process that is taking part within the international project titled The Paradox of Justice – European Laboratory Theatre Co-production (JUSTLAB), realized within Creative Europe program from December 2022 until end of November 2024.

We want to share with you the steps of our work on a theatrical co-production through different textual, photographic, video, graphic and other material.

JUSTLAB aims at creation of a transnational laboratory theatre co-production, by three partners – PLAVO theatre – the theatre laboratory from Serbia, which is the lead partner, Theaterlabor Bielefeld from Germany and the Grotowski Institute from Poland.

It also aims at building capacity within the sector of European laboratory theatre, by promoting its values, providing conditions for laboratory practices to develop, by sharing knowledge and allowing its practitioners to be active at an international level.  

The coproduction will raise awareness, enhance dialog and empathy among audiences and promote societal resilience, by critical reaction to different aspects of injustice in contemporary Europe.

With our artistic work, we reflect on the rise of violence and the crisis of democratic values, which is most visible in the rise of extreme right-wing ideologies, hostility towards migrants, women and socially marginalized groups, as well as in the reckless destruction of nature.
