PQ Youth and Family

Theatre is surrounded by a mist of magical mystery: things come to life and speak, time stands still or accelerates, the invisible is revealed and matter disappears. A program for families with children will allow you to enter behind the scenes of the exhibitions of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space and get a taste of extraordinary theatre miracles.
