Talking in Town is a series of three talks about the relation between scenography and public space.
These talks take place somewhere in Prague at one of the many ‘found stages’ the city has to offer. A moderator will lead the discussions. Guests will be the artists and designers who on behalf of The Netherlands are taking part in Between Realities. But also artists from other countries who are publicly active during the PQ join in as well as several experts who have been invited to speak on this theme. The talks are open to the public.
Talking in Town II: The city as stage explores Prague from the perspective of scenography. If we regard Prague as a stage set, how should we understand the scenography of the city? Where does the podium begin or end? Is there some place you could call backstage? What scripts are there to be found? What roles? How, through the course of history, has Prague given form to its public space?
Moderator: Ine Poppe (art critic)
Guests: Caspar van Gemund (programme developer), Vinny Jones (lighting designer), Eva Schippers (visual artist) Dorita Hannah (scenographer, entry New Zealand) and Marcus Lüscher (visual artist, entry Switzerland)
