What happens when landscapes become theatre? What if art did not represent nature but allowed us to experience it differently and collectively?

With “Shared Landscapes”, curator Caroline Barneaud and director Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll) invite the audience to leave the theatre and to venture out into Berlin’s green surroundings. From the early afternoon to the late evening sun, the participants will stroll between forest and meadows, with a map, to hone their awareness of their environment through the devices of art and to perhaps lose their sense of time. Which new perspectives can we adopt when productions not only address what we call nature as a topic, but rather take place in its midst? In the open air, artistic interventions, sound compositions, choreographies, audio-tours, media-installations and performances will centre on what is often overlooked, and create a new form of community for one moment on the green periphery of the big city.
With pieces by Chiara Bersani and Marco D’Agostin, El Conde de Torrefiel, Sofia Dias and Vítor Roriz, Begüm Erciyas and Daniel Kötter, Stefan Kaegi, Ari Benjamin Meyers as well as Émilie Rousset
