The PQ 2023 theme is the RARE : art springing out of ideas, materials, artistic approaches, and design practices that connect to the human level from within an environment, with its genius loci and showing its unique character.

The United States exhibit will celebrate RARE design submissions that support the inclusion of under-represented communities, acknowledge stories born from systemic power structures and historical events, and document the recent Covid-19 pandemic. The range of curated designs that will represent PQ23 RARE artistic forms include forward-thinking, unexpected, socially conscious, atypical, innovative, out-of-the-box, and traditional designs.

Prague Quadrennial calls on Performance Designers, Scenographers, and Performance Practitioners to use their RARE imagination and creativity to help envision what theatre and the world could look like in a post-pandemic future.
