Planning Begins for PQ 2007
Preparations are beginning for the United States Prague Quadrennial 2007 (PQ 2007) exhibits including a national display featuring designs from producing theatre organizations, an exhibit focused on the work of students and schools of scenography, and an area for architectural designs of theatre spaces.
For the national exhibit, the curators will seek designs from productions that examine contemporary themes in American culture and politics, or expand existing trends in design. Designers are encouraged to enter ground-breaking and inventive designs that provide distinct insights into the world of the play, and to life within our borders in today's world. Set, costume, lighting, and sound designers are invited to submit their designs for the selection process. A web page is being prepared to provide additional information and applications forms for digital submissions. Check the PQ page on the USITT web site for further information during the next month. The deadline for submissions to the national exhibit is March 1, 2006.
Announcements for submission plans for the student and architecture exhibits will appear in subsequent issues.
