The main theme of the 13th Prague Quadrennial is “SharedSpace: Music Weather Politics”. Since 1967, the Prague Quadrennial has been following and presenting the latest trends in scenography and the architecture of performance space. PQ is the world’s largest event to explore the field of scenography in its full breadth: stage, costume, lighting and sound design, but also new scenographic approaches such as site-specific work, street performances, and much more.
