Common Design Project Open View

PQ Studio: Common Design Project is a celebration of the emerging artist’s studio through the practice, craft and artistry of design for text-based theatre resulting in a curated exhibition of student designs that develop out of design-coursework/assignment. The project will also include organized critiques and discussion of the exhibited works by a panel of international designers.

The diversity of presentation seen at the last 2 editions of PQ, with representation from traditional theatre, performative installation, and immersive experience, demonstrates that performance design is an evolving art form - continually being reimagined by its practitioners. With this in mind, PQ Studio asks these questions: What is the relationship between traditional, text-based plays and performance design in 2019? How can performance designers engage with these texts to create immediately relevant theatrical experiences for modern audiences? How can we dynamically answer: Why this play? Why now? And how, as visual dramaturgs, can performance designers assume creative leadership of a text-based production?

This Common Design Project is inspired by a previous PQ project, originally conceived by Pamela Howard, that had a major presence at PQ 2003 (A Lear for Our Time). For 2019, the Common Design Project serves as a catalyst for global discussion between students and educators as they explore and create designs for Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry. 35 Participating design courses individually set this project within their existing teaching structures, creating local conversations not only about the text and approaches to its staging, but also the nature of art, performance design/scenography, and theatre. In Prague, these conversations will expand onto an international platform, generating an exciting opportunity to showcase the next generation of performance designers. The selected projects have been invited to engage with other emerging artists, leading practitioners, and PQ attendees over 3 days of moderated discussion examining the play and proposed designs, 13-15 June.
