How to build my program at my.pq.cz?

my.pq.cz, as well as this website, offers a daily schedule of all 11 days of PQ 2019. Yet, visitors are encouraged to to be open to surprises and unexpected experiences. For fans of more organised visit, the My diary tool is the option. Browsing through the schedule, you can choose what event you do not want to miss and add it to your daily plan by clicking at “add to my diary”.

Evening PQ Talks and PQ Studio: Festival performances, however, are due to registration for accredited visitors. It follows the first come- first served strategy so if being interested, add it to your schedule by clicking at “reserve”.
Important note, it is NOT possible to “reserve” two events running at the same time! On the other hand, it is possible to “add to your diary” two events running at the same time that are not due to registration.

Is it possible to attend events that are due to reservation without an accreditation?

Yes, it is possible to attend evening PQ Talks and PQ Studio: Festival performance even without the accreditation. You can buy your tickets via GoOut.

If I am participating in both the Emergence: Practice Exchange and the Emergence: Portfolio Library can I use the same portfolio for both or should I bring two copies?

You should bring two copies of your portfolio if you wish to participate in both of these projects – one to leave in the Portfolio Library and one to take with you to discuss your work as part of the Practice Exchange. However these portfolios do not need to be the same, and could contain different content or have a different format from each other to make best use of these two programs.

Workshops related info

Will there be any free places at doors for workshops that are fully booked?

Indeed. There will be two tickets for sale at doors from 9:00 the morning when your workshop is happening.

Then, Exploratory Workshops participants need to come to their registered workshop at least 10 minutes in advance, otherwise their reservations will be cancelled and their places offered to awaiting participants!

If buying a workshop, do I automatically get an accreditation?

No, you won´t. To enjoy PQ 2019 as a whole, think about buying your accreditation when purchasing a workshop.

In what language will workshops and masterclasses be conducted?

All workshops and masterclasses should be presented in English.

What topics are explored through PQ Studio workshops and masterclasses?

PQ Studio will act as a catalyst for creative progress by encouraging experimentation, networking, innovation and future collaboration. In this spirit, we are looking for proposals that explore all forms and approaches of performance design organized around PQ2019’s guiding artistic principals of IMAGINATION, TRANSFORMATION and MEMORY.

A list of approaches can be found in the Call for Proposals.
