Landscape Art It is the fundraising program for the “Landscape Theaters” project, a documentary play on the Cuatrocenigas Valley in Coahuila by director Aristio Mora de Anda. “Landscape theaters” is a project that asks about a type of play that the actor Rodrigo Parini calls the cosmic play, which resort to the ethics of the gaze, where the theater does not impose meaning, but rather the play acts as a meeting of the senses to invoke new meanings.
It is about creating an environment of meaning. What does the landscape tell us? And what would happen if we learned to observe this with other records, and wonder what place in the world do animals occupy and what space do we observe, ”Aristio explains.
“Landscape theaters” is a work that collects materials that originated in the valley in order to “talk with” the species and agents who live in this area who are currently in danger of disappearing, and form a scenic version that allows us to observe in detail what we cannot see with the naked eye, ” Mentions the interviewee.
The project will be implemented in the Cuatrocinegas Valley, a prehistoric valley in the middle of the desert, where there are still a large number of endemic species unique in the world that have evolved to be preserved in an environment that has remained isolated due to the fact that this space forms a closed basin.
Learn to look at landscapes
“The scene of exploitation and displacement is a theater in which the senses and the survival of the life that lives in these lands are endangered. What do the landscapes tell us? We want to learn to view it in a different way, and for the theater to allow us to train in other ways of communicating with the valley where traces of the origin of our existence are preserved. Aristio comments.
“Landscape Theaters” are implemented with support from FONCA Young Creators, Kenji Kishi Leopo, Lucia Ortiz Arellano, Cesárea Tinajero, Mabel Garza Blackaller, Claudia Gutiérrez, Lola Bianchin, Claudia Luna Fuentes, Dona Wiseman, Luis Falcón and Roberto Cement.
For her part, Donna Weizmann commented:
“Landscape theaters” seek to create hybrid forms between science, activism and the arts, enabling other strategies to preserve and enhance our natural heritage through theater that can practice sympathetic, intimate forms of bonding and propagation.

like he said
I feel very fortunate to be able to work with the people I love and admire so much and that year after year they keep asking themselves together What is theater? How good is it to continue without finding an answer, and that this is a pretext for a meeting to investigate. “
