Extraterrestrials, a Spartakiad, and an unusual travel agency

Prague Quadrennial

From 6 to 16 June at the Prague Exhibition Grounds, the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space presents exhibitions, projects, and performances from 79 countries, and the Czech Republic is a strong part of it all. On Štvanice Island, as part of the festival’s main competition section, the Exhibition of Countries and Regions, the Czech Republic presents the co-production CAMPQ, which transports visitors into a camp for newly arrived extraterrestrials.

Meanwhile, students from Brno’s JAMU will attempt, through a fictitious travel agency, to convince audiences that “Prague Is Not Czechia.” 

Also on the program are an unusual Spartakiad from the performance group tYhle, a short film about the unique multifunctional DOX+, and an homage to an outstanding representative of Czech scenography, the late Iva Němcová. For a full festival program and to purchase accreditation, visit www.pq.cz. Single-day tickets are available via GoOut.
