Prague Quadrennial, which has been exploring and presenting the latest trends in scenography and performance architecture since 1967, will be launched on 5th June 2019. The fourteenth edition of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space will take place from 6th to 16th June 2019.
The areas of interest of the 2019 festival are Imagination, Transformation, and Memory. PQ 2019 will include three competitive exhibitions: the Exhibition of Countries and Regions, the Performance Space Architecture Exhibition – Theatre of Our World, and the Student Exhibition.
Besides issuing an official call for applications from countries and regions, the Prague Quadrennial's organizing team also recently presented the artistic concept for the upcoming festival, which is loosely inspired by the statue of the Golden Triga, the main award traditionally given to the best exhibition at PQ. “For us, the Triga is a metaphor for the combination of three forces into one force leading towards a common goal, and it reflects the importance of close collaboration that, by bringing together various skills and talents, produces results that an individual could barely achieve on his or her own. The three horses of the Triga are also a metaphor for the three stages in life: the wildness of youth, adulthood enlivened by experiences, and the wisdom of old age. These will be the three main angles from which we will be exploring the three different and cyclically repeating stages of the creative process: Imagination, Transformation, and Memory," explains PQ 2019's Artistic Director Markéta Fantová.
The deadline for submissions for all exhibitions is 31 October 2017.
