36Q˚ (pronounced “threesixty”) brings the artistic and technical side of performance design into sharp focus and poses important questions the industry is facing today. Both, 2016 36Q video and 2019 36Q video, prove that creative minds based in the arts, using boundless imagination paired with new technological advancements, enrich our society by creating original and highly inspiring mind-expanding works.

EMERGENCE. From shared experience to new creativity. Living Heritage/Reframing Memory. 

Using performance, the EMERGENCE (EU project lead by PQ, and uniting 8 international partners) explores the role of local and global memory in shaping formations of cultural understanding and interpreting heritage in different areas across Europe as a tool and means of connecting established professional designers with emerging performance creators to develop strong dramaturgical and interpretative skills in the next generation of creators. The special EMERGENCE. Catalogue communicates local findings through the more universal language of art and performance design/scenography. More info on project is available at emergence.pq.cz.

Canon. Theatre Technical History
