PQ 2019


Co-Artistic Director Sophie Jump has curated the Site-Specific Performance Festival for PQ2019, presenting scenographically oriented performances by emerging and established international artists and ensembles. The diverse program offers everything from intimate performances for a limited number of viewers or public actions that visitors can join, all the way to grand spectacles. The range of options includes drama, dance, performance art, storytelling, costumes, installations, and new technologies from around the world.

Site-Specific Performance Festival takes place in the Exhibition Ground’s outdoor areas, in neighboring Stromovka Park, and elsewhere throughout Prague. The performances in the city center take the audience into familiar as well as practically unknown places. “Each performance invites the audience to savor the venue in all its intertwining layers – visible as well as invisible – and to do so through unusual interactions,” adds curator Sophie Jump.

The Site Specific Performance festival runs from 7-15 June as part of the Prague Quadrennial 2019. www.pq.cz
