What if the landscape was a theatre? What if art did not represent the environment, but allowed us to experience it collectively? What is at stake today in our relationship to “nature” and its representations, and in the relationship between urban and rural spaces, in a time when our climate and resources are leading us towards a new awareness of fragility and interdependence?

Caroline Barneaud (Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne) and Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll) are inviting institutions and artists to leave the cities, theatres and venues in order to “enter the landscape”, to pay collective attention to what surrounds us, and to share in a way of looking at territory, far from that of developers or owners. International artists, partners and local teams will come together to create a theatrical journey between field and forest, in a kind of performative, theatrical, ephemeral and collective piece of land art.
Spectators will meet in the countryside in the afternoon for a new kind of excursion: an artistic escapade. After receiving a map and a small kit bag, they will embark on a journey until sunset, the discovery of a territory and seven “variations on the landscape” created by artists.

Seven artists or artist duos of different nationalities and artistic disciplines – 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, Emilie Rousset – have devised light and mobile performances. These pieces posit that the landscape is not a mere backdrop, inviting us instead to immerse ourselves in it, to enter into relationships in a different and collective way, to shift our usual perspectives, to highlight the invisible as well as some of the fictions that govern our perceptions of nature.
