The Dutch program Between Realities is a research in the public space of Praha 1, the city centre of Prague. It consists of small scale interventions, cartographic explorations and public discussions. Each day our team critically explored and intervened in the many staged realities that are to be found around the city. They focus on the tension between the emerging Disneyfication and theatricalisation of the inner city and the continuation of daily life in Prague. They used their scenographical tools and views to map realities of commerce, tourism, history, politics, labour and art; to expose or question their scenography, or even transform it. How do these realities relate to each other and how do people cope with them? Do we fight, flee, shelter, negotiate or surrender?
