Abstract

Sited at Prague’s literal & metaphorical crossroads, NOW/NEXT explored the intersection between performance & space. It displayed work from 32 countries in the National Exhibition (representing practices NOW), projected cutting-edge projects in the Media Tower (working BETWEEN architecture & scenography) and drew together designers/theorists in the Open Spatial Laboratory (asking what a theatre could be NEXT). It also incorporated OISTAT’s 4-yearly Theatre Architecture Competition (TAC). The Exhibition was bifurcated by a glowing wall that displayed selected TAC submissions printed onto suspended plastic sheets. Each nation presented their current state of theatre via a specially designed table they adapted or redesigned. The 10m high Media Tower visually linked the lower exhibition space with the upper Laboratory that also housed a projection tower and a studio for visiting international researchers & practitioners. It also doubled as a space for public lectures, symposia & reviews.
