To many, the Prague Quadrennial is a two-week scenography event that takes place every four years. However, since 2003, PQ engages in a continuous stream of activities and collaborations across the globe with many different partners, creatives, disruptors, artists, researchers and theorists. We keep the door open for our performing arts collaborators to stay involved in many varied ways, to participate and contribute to the performance design community. PQ is shedding its “every four-year scenography Olympics” status, and no longer starts with the opening ceremony and ends with the last visitor leaving the exhibition grounds. Our current philosophy reflects the ongoing creative cradle-to-cradle process and an attempt to map the evolution of performance design, scenography and performance space though series of many different events culminating in the Quadrennial Festival and Exhibition.
The Prague Quadrennial is organized and funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and realized by Arts and Theatre Institute.
