Florida State University’s School of Theatre unveiled two scenic exhibits at the Richard G. Fallon Theatre, where guests experienced the designs first-hand before they made an international journey to Prague for the Prague Quadrennial.
Florida State University was chosen out of dozens of universities across the country as the build site to represent the United States of America at the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space due to the exceptional capabilities, facilities, and resources of its theatre program.
“We are incredibly excited to be unveiling these works in the Fallon Theatre,” said James Frazier, dean of FSU’s College of Fine Arts. “Being selected as the build team for the Prague Quadrennial is a great honor and is indicative of the high caliber of our technical theatre program.”
Known as “the Olympics of performance design,” the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space hosts tens of thousands of designers, scholars, and professionals from around the globe. The two designs were constructed at FSU to represent the United States on the global stage in the Czech Republic in June of 2023.
The build team, led by Jim Lile, associate professor of technical production, comprises eight FSU School of Theatre technical production graduate students and several theatre faculty members.
