Encounter, body to body, body-tree, body-mountain. A conversation-dance surrounded by colourful greens that are felt, smelt, touched, and heard. Attentive to the complicity between all living things. Practising movement in the forest.


Pedro Prazeres  places dance and landscape in a symbiotic relationship of crossed knowledge. Landscape architect and choreographer in equal measure, his work fits into the intersection of both creative processes and intertwines his artistic practice in the relationship between place, subject, and the ethereal. In his work, landscape and dance resonate through a sensory, proprioceptive, and intuitive approach. He creates choreographic installations, whether wandering or not, which he presents at international festivals, in contemporary art museums, in unconventional locations, in non-urban and urban environments. The way in which humans transform their environment and how that environment transforms them is one of the central issues in his work.

ONE, TWO, AND MANY | The Reading Body, or Infinity


ONE, TWO, AND MANY | The Reading Body, or Infinity is the latest instalment in Marta Wengorovius's plastic and participatory artwork ONE, TWO, AND MANY.* This visual piece is also a method through which the artist explores issues stemming from intuition and the genesis of movement, emphasising the different dimensions of three types of dynamics: ONE as singularity and interiority, TWO as intimacy, and MANY as an encounter with the experience of community.


The Reading Body, or Infinity is an invitation to take part in a slow process of gestation and digestion: over the course of a year, a series of encounters will take place in the form of guided walks between a museum (maat) and a mountain range (Serra da Arrábida), activating the ONE, TWO, AND MANY* Library (a work created in 2012 that serves as a reflection guide for the OTM Method*) at a crossroads between the Book and the Body. Three books have been selected from the ONE, TWO, AND MANY Library. Each will be read over four months by each Utopian Family. The Time of ONE, the Time of TWO, and the Time of MANY. During each reading period, there will be a Stimulus-Encounter, Encounters with the Nomadic Notebooks* (OTM reading and exploration diaries) and Lessons Under the Trees.* [Please refer to the Glossary to better understand these different instalments.]


Designed specifically for maat, ONE, TWO, AND MANY | The body that reads, or infinity is the artwork's fourth instalment. This journey began with OTM — Nomadic School* | Taking the colours where they are most needed (2020–22) at Jardim dos Pintores, Casa da Cerca, Almada, followed by OTM Residency (2020–23) at Teatro do Bairro Alto (TBA), Lisbon, and more recently OTM | If a mountain range were to guide us (2022–23), at Brotéria, Lisbon.
