What is PQ?
As described on PQ's site, "The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space was established in 1967 to bring the best of design for performance, scenography, and theatre architecture to the front line of cultural activities to be experienced by professional and emerging artists as well as the general public. The quadrennial exhibitions, festivals, and educational programs act as a global catalyst of creative progress by encouraging experimentation, networking, innovation, and future collaborations. PQ aims to honor, empower and celebrate the work of designers, artists and architects while inspiring and educating audiences, who are the most essential element of any live performance".

What is The Power Co. Collab bringing to PQ?
The Power Company Collaborative, a collective of contemporary dance artists in South Carolina, will present "Singing Wall," an interactive performance at the 2019 Prague Quadrennial in June. Teamed with architect Matthew Kennedy of Mexico City and sound designer Evan May of New York City, PoCoCo has created "Singing Wall," an experiment in response to the much-debated proposed wall on the southern US border. Motivated by their mission of empowerment for all people, PoCoCo seeks to cultivate connectivity, rather than create barriers between people.
PoCoCo is excited to present as a part of the PQ Formations, which is an "architecture movement project investigating the impact of movement, structures, and patterns in performance and everyday life through time-based performative actions that will ripple and interact with each other across an urban landscape."
