The 100th anniversary of the futurist conference by Almada Negreiros and Santa Rita Pintor motivated Projecto P!, a critical theory and curatorial programme about how performance art assembles, recreates and participates in the public sphere.  

Projecto P! took place in several venues in Lisbon on 10-14 April 2017 involving an international conference, a selection of performances and the publication of the book Performance na Esfera Pública (Orfeu Negro, 2017).
