Prague Quadrennial (PQ)  is the most important international events dedicated to the best of design for performance, scenography, and theatre architecture, recognised by UNESCO and after the 2015 edition also by the EFFE Awards, as one of the most trend-setting European festivals.

“The exhibit offers a vivid sense of the national identity and the vital spirit of creativity that animates Brazil; a current that flows from its cultural sources and continues spontaneously to open new scenographic horizons. The exhibit also gives an impression of the rich diversity and the range of scenographies and productions that take place in Brazil. Equal place is given to street art, site-specific interventions, socially conscious performance, puppetry as well as to more conventional theatre. The jury acknowledges the ingenuity in resolving a number of design issues in the works presented.  The exhibition is presented with flair, sensitivity and style.”
