Prague Quadrennial 2023: RARE

Following the success of our two previous special double issues devoted to the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (PQ2015) (PQ2019), the editors of the journal Theatre and Performance Design, Thea Brejzek and Jane Collins, are pleased to announce a call for contributions to a special double issue devoted to the 15th edition of the Prague Quadrennial 2023(PQ 23). This will be published in summer 2024 and will be edited by Thea Brejzek and Jane Collins.

The theme of PQ 2023 is RARE which the organisers characterise as β€˜the sense of unique and raw realities that artists create.’ At PQ 23 there promises to be a plethora of activities, workshops, performances, exhibitions and talks traversing the multimodal realities of performance design and space. Therefore, for this special double issue on PQ 23, in addition to scholarly articles of 6000 – 8000 words, we are especially interested in shorter submissions from the curators of projects, countries and regions, as well as artists and presenters that reflect on their process in preparing work, and the experience of being part of PQ23. These can take the form of short written pieces (1000 – 3000 words), interviews
or visual essays. We especially welcome contributions from scholars, artists, and participants from the Global South, in any of the above formats, to expand the reach of the journal and reflect the growing diversity of PQ.

Submission Instructions

Please send expressions of interest in the form of a short abstract/proposal to Nick Tatchell, our editorial associate ([email protected]) by 1st August 2023.

Selected articles will be invited to submit completed submissions by 2nd January 2024. If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact Nick Tatchell on [email protected].
