I am feeling a bit under the weather today so instead of continuing on my work I thought I would promote another exciting piece of art. The Prague Quadrennial happens every 4 years and highlights the best of theater design around the world. I went in 2007 and was blown away. There are all sorts of ways to participate, from displaying your work, to attending lectures to workshops. Since 2007 I have been getting updates about what is planned for 2011. This event landed in my inbox this morning and seemed like an amazing opportunity.
A UNIQUE ARTISTIC EXPERIMENT AT THE PRAGUE QUADRENNIAL! A GREAT FINAL GAME IN THE FORMER, SOON-TO-BE DEMOLISHED PRINTING PRESS BUILDING
Krétakör, Hungarian performance and media workshop, is looking for participants to volunteer in a major artistic experiment at the Prague Quadrennial 2011 between 9 and 24 June.
The participants will move into the Právo printing house on 9 June and will live there together full time until 24 June. Participants will be confined together in Právo for 15 days, eating, drinking, sleeping together, and becoming both the creators of the art piece and the art piece in itself. Those that stay through this extreme experiment will live through an exploration that will include creating a performativecommunity art piece, connected to a film and an installation. The experiment also includes a public presentation for international audiences during three days – June 22 – 24 – as part of the Intersection project of the Prague Quadrennial in the 2011 European Year of Volunteering.
“If you miss your chance now your miss it forever! If you think of your future you are one of us!” (Franz Kafka)
Even if you are not interested in being in the performances, if you have the time and the money to get out to see the PQ I highly recommend it.
