About the program
The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, established in 1967, brings the best of design for performance, scenography, and theatre architecture to the front line of cultural activities to be experienced by professional and emerging artists as well as the general public.
Students involved in the class will have the opportunity to exhibit their own work and will engage in several research topics as well as being surrounded with a big array of activities offered during the 11 days festival.
The artistic concept for the upcoming edition is RARE and is described as followed: «For PQ 2023, we would like to invite you to share the RARE: art springing out of ideas, materials, artistic approaches, and design practices that connect to the human level from within your environment, with its genius loci and unique situation. In the current state of precarity, uncertainty, and epochal change, we call on performance designers, scenographers, and performance practitioners to use their RARE imagination and creativity to help us envision what the world and theatre could look like in the post-pandemic future.»
Responding to this team, the curating team of the Canada + Quebec Students and Emerging Artists Exhibit 2023 invites participants to be active around the theme of Troubled Water / Eaux Troubles (https://pqemerging.wixsite.com/pqemerging2023), where the following question is explored: What does water represent to you?
