SEAS is a pan-European project that unites artists from the Adriatic and the Baltic Sea. The project brings together experience and expression from different regions and coasts. It is a site specific and traveling exposition of art/theatre/dance/visual art. SEAS highlights through its conglomeration of artists, partners, and countries, the central theme of the European project. It presents a spectrum of visions made up of geographic, economic, and historic experiences. SEAS focuses on harbor areas/cities as they are areas of mobility, national borders, migration, transportation and often historic landmarks. Thus it reflects on the cultural dimension of urban renewal.
