2019 PRAGUE QUADRENNIAL
Build Team Member: Emily Powrie
Exhibits Built at The University at Buffalo
"The Prague Quadrennial (PQ) is the largest performance design event in the world; it is often described as the Olympics or World Fair for performance designers. In recent years, the PQ has served as a meeting point for artists from every continent, artists whose traditions and professional lives might not otherwise converge. By exhibiting thousands of designs from dozens of countries, and by bringing together designers, directors, students, and the general public, the PQ provides an unprecedented exchange of ideas that goes well beyond the narrow confines of theatrical design and style. With four major categories of exhibits; National, Thematic, Architectural, and Emerging Artist, the PQ has been a major factor in shaping the direction of world theatre and live performance for the past four decades.
