The main event of the Prague Quadrennial will consist of a presentation of contemporary scenography from all participating countries. The Greek national participation will present a broad range of costuming and creation from 2017-2023, with the participation of numerous creators from the Greek performing arts.
The Greek scenography has been collected and printed in a series of postcards, which will be available for viewing in the kiosk of the Greek national participation.
The six-member curatorial team was formed through a series of open online meetings of scenographers and costume experts. They ultimately selected 57 projects from Greek artists active in the field of scenography, to be included in the Greek national participation. This is, to date, the largest participation of Greece in the PQ in the professional section. Inclusive representation of many subdisciplines and artistic generations is a key feature, which was from the beginning a common desire of all the scenographers, the curatorial team and the Ministry of Culture.
The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (PQ) has been organized every four years since 1967 by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic in collaboration with the Prague Arts and Theatre Institute.
So far, Greece has participated six times in the PQ (1991, 1995, 2003, 2007, 2011
& 2015) represented by acclaimed, artists and awarded several distinctions.
From 1991 to 2015, participation in the exhibition was organised by the Hellenic Centre of the International Theatre Institute and held under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture.
