The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (PQ) is the biggest event of its kind in the world. Founded in 1967, the event is dedicated to exploring every element of performance space design – set design, costumes, lighting, and sound, along with new methods of scenic design that are reflected in site-specific performances, applied stage design, street performance, costume as performance, and much more. The 14th Prague Quadrennial will take place from 6 to 16 June 2019 and will be held at Prague Výstaviště (Prague Exhibition Grounds).
The Prague Quadrennial received the prestigious European EFFE Award in 2015–2016 as one of the twelve most progressive European festivals.
Alongside its central exhibition events, the Prague Quadrennial has an accompanying programme made up of various cultural projects – exhibitions, symposia, workshops, educational activities, and artist residencies – and featuring performances, the aim being to create an international platform for the development of theory and advances in the practice of contemporary scenic design in its broadest sense.
