Intersection project continues presenting artists around the world, post events of the Praque Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space
Many things that began at the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (PQ) in June 2011 continue being developed around the world.
This includes the Intersection project – thirty boxes that formed an impossible-to-overlook labyrinth on the Piazzetta of the National Theatre. A hit with audiences, the different spaces inside the boxes (ranging from intimate to extravagant designs) presented dance performances, installations, video art, and fashion. More about the boxes here.
The art projects were created by renowned artists such as scenographer Anna Viebrock, visual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, choreographer Josef Nadj, and Italian theatre director Romeo Castellucci. Czech Republic was represented by Josef Bolf, Egon Tobiáš and Bohdan Holomíček.
The projects were chosen in order to show the broadest possible range of fields and disciplines working with performative action as well as variety forms and functions of the contemporary performative space. The success of this curatorial approach is underscored by the fact that, since the end of the PQ, many of the Intersection projects have been performed in other countries, for instance at European theatre festivals and at theatres in Latvia, Norway, Italy, Finland, Portugal, Hungary, Serbia, and Slovakia.

“ We are glad that Intersection has been presented within new contexts, both in terms of different spaces as well as audiences – for instance, at a primary school in Santarcangelo, an abandoned building in Riga, and the Old Theatre in Nitra. In this way, the project is given new meanings,” says Sodja Lotker, the Prague Quadrennial’s artistic director and author of the Intersection concept.
