An International Jury rewarded Prague Quadrennial as one of 12 most trend-setting European festivals of this year from a pool of 760 festivals from 31 countries. The main criteria were artistic merit, innovation, internationality, political value and sustainability.
The jury’s decision was based on hard work by experts who pulled together a list of their country’s festivals; from world-renowned dates in the cultural calendar to eclectic events known to insiders.
The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space is the largest scenography event in the world that explores a wide range of scenographic practices – from stage, costume, lighting and sound design and to scenographic practices such as site-specific, applied scenography, urban performance and costume as performance. Its programmes for students and young professionals are an extremely important aspect, making it a vital gathering for young artists and designers.
We are very pleased that we were part of it and hope that this award will raise the understanding of the importance of the Prague Quadrennial also in Austria.
