Inverted Landscapes, an exhibition-performance by André e. Teodósio/Teatro Praga that will be presented at Galeria Kunstraum Botschaft – Camões Berlim, a coproduction with Fundação EDP | MAAT and Embaixada de Portugal – Camões Berlim.
Starting from a connection between Lisbon and Berlin, Inverted Landscapes recovers the life of two figures of Portuguese performing arts, who change geographical destinations in search of the same artistic goal: Ruth Aswin, a German, who came to dance in Portugal in the 1930s, and her student, Valentim de Barros, who flees to Berlin in search of work and freedom. Inverted Landscapes is thus a tribute to the uprooting link that was common to the two artists of the historiography of these two countries, as well as to the attentive perception of two ways of living that have always had more history than geography.
