The lab is a part of the Future Epics project, envisioned to highlight the suppressed and forgotten historical narratives through arts. The project is a two-year Creative Europe cooperation between Heartefact (Serbia), Tasca (Spain), Vitlycke – Centre for Performing Arts (Sweden) and Dubrovnik Summer Festival (Croatia). This Lab is the first out of three labs that will be organized as a part of the project.
