Shared Landscapes

Inside Out

From afternoon to sunset, we spend a day in nature to explore the plains and forest of Quinta do Pisão, in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, and discover seven artistic projects in dialogue with the landscape. Swiss director Stefan Kaegi, from the German collective Rimini Protokoll, and artistic curator Caroline Barneaud invited nine European artists to share their vision of the landscape. Musical sculptures, theatrical interventions, philosophical audio plays and a virtual reality experience create an unforgettable collective experience. As we enter into imaginary landscapes that awaken our senses and map out what can and cannot be perceived, we experience a surprising examination of the relationship between humans and their environment, between nature and culture.

Shared Landscapes is part the European project Performing Landscape, the result of a collaboration with institutions and organizations from Spain, Italy, Portugal, Austria, Slovenia, Germany, Switzerland and France. Artists, cultural institutions and scientists develop a reflection on the notions of art, landscape and territory, drawing a visible and invisible map of the different European places they visit, unveiling the spaces they share through the prism of arts and sciences. A different way of looking at and reinventing Europe together. Quinta do Pisão, in Cascais, will be the Portuguese “shared landscape” for this European project.
