Call for entries for student workshops within Porous Borders symposium in Prague

The Prague Quadrennial announces call for entries for students of art and theatre studies to participate in one-day workshop 36Q° dedicated to scenography – particularly its component of costume design. The workshop will take place on 13th October within the autumn Porous Borders symposium at DAMU in Prague. The individual workshops will be led by Czech and foreign theatre professionals.

Workshop “Thinking Through Thresholds" offered by Platform-Scenography from Netherlands led by Anne Karin ten Bosch and Liesbeth Groot Nibbelink will focus on the role of transition zones in scenography and performance design. Spatial and temporal transitions are essential tools in performance design. Shaping is itself a way of creating or adjusting borders. Drawing, dividing, combining, morphing, clustering, and even hiding; in those compositional acts, scenography moves through various positions and places, and exposes the multiple perspectives the world distinctively needs today.


Workshop “Encounter 4" led by Joost van Wijmen will explore the dynamics and transformations of the borders of and between two bodies as a result of touch. Making physical contact raises (universal) awareness not only of the space surrounding our body but also of the fluidity and transformability of this space. For this short contact moment our senses are on edge.


Workshop “Shifting Outlines" led by Jana Preková will explore the spatial relationships of human body extended by costume with aim to blur the boundaries between body and space that surrounds it.


HOW TO APPLY: Please, fill out the application form HERE before 30th September 2017.

Participation at the workshop is free of charge. Travel, accommodation costs and per diems are covered by participants themselves.
