The University at Buffalo Department of Theatre and Dance has been invited to create an exhibit for the internationally renowned Prague Quadrennial (PQ) of Performance Design and Space, and you are invited to view this tremendously creative display on Monday, January 28, 2019 while the exhibit is here in Buffalo.

Join fellow UB alumni and friends with the Western New York theatre and arts community as we gather at UB Center for the Arts to hear first-hand from the students who contributed to this project. Sponsored by the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT), students are working to build two exhibits designed from a professional design team and an emerging design team. You will have the first look at what is considered the most outstanding contributions from US stage designers working from grassroots theatres to the Broadway stage. Following a complimentary reception with cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres in the Black Box from 6-7 p.m., the exhibit will be on display in the Drama Theatre from 7-8 p.m.
