Pedro Prazeres’ work binds dance and landscape on a symbiotic relation of crossed knowledge. By turn landscape architect and choreographer, his works belong to the intersection of both creative processes and he weaves his artistic practice in the relationship between the place, the subject, and the ethereal. For him, landscape and dance come in resonance through a sensory, proprioceptive and intuitive approach.
Pedro is now based at the Cévennes and Porto. After a degree in Landscape Architecture in Lisbon and Helsinki, dance degree in Dundee and Prague (where he was awarded INOV-Art grant for artistic crossings), we worked as a dancer and landscape architect in Prague and Berlin. Lately, after having finished the MA program ex.e.r.ce at the National Choreographic Centre of Montpellier deepening his research on Landscape, Dance and other stories, he continues his artistic work towards the notions of in betweenness, non place and free will. How humans condition the environment how this environment conditions human decisions is a major question on Pedro’s work.
Besides his landscape architecture teaching and consulting work, Pedro creates dance installations and performances he has presented in international festivals, such as DDD festival (Dias da Dança) at Porto, FIDCU at Montevideo, museums, like Serralves Foundation, Prague National Gallery, theatres, non-conventional venues, and urban and rural landscapes. He works as interpreter and collaborator and has worked with Antonjia Livingstone, Martha Moore, Fabrice Ramalingom, Mette Ingvartsen, Christine Quoiraud, among others.
Pedro also works as a dance dramaturge and shares his practice through workshops for professional dancers, dance schools, the general public and social, pedagogical and psychological institutions.
