The theatre for 200 spectators is also ready. It was built by students and workers from 1200 boxes made out of five layers of cardboard, it was completed in only two weeks. Dozens of performances will be playing on the stage from 15th to 24th June. The scene was designed by Jean Guy Lecat ( France), Ian Evans and Sean Crowley ( Great Britain). The boxes which were used for building the theatre are filled with acoustic thermally insulated material.
The exhibitions which represent 53 states have been built from 8th June. The central design feature will be an organically rich PQ bar with interactive elements for both children and adults. There will be places for meetings and for creative work too. The bar has been made specially for PQ and was made by the versatile Czech artist Krištof Kintera with the group Jednotka. The german designer Isi Kunath will settle down in this newly created world for the whole time of PQ. She will offer objects and model dresses from recycled clothes to the visitors under the motto Give your clothes another chance. But it will also be possible to see Isi Kunath in Wenceslas Square at Saint Wenceslas monument on 13th June.
This is the first occasion when the Prague Quadriennale will take place in the streets. Sound and light designers, performers, dancers and other artists will contribute to the varied and multilayered production. They will be seen in the city centre including the most frequented tourist areas. The performances and installations not to be missed will happen there. The organizers of PQ have always been focused on pupils of primary schools, students of grammar schools, visitors or their parents and teachers. The special programme PQ for Children ( www. pqdetem.cz ) includes stage design and costume work shops. The exhibiton of costumes was designed and realized by children, although adventurous games in Průmyslový palace come first.
