A 28 de Maio, dia em que celebrou 11 ANOS de existência, a PIA rumou a terras de Viseu, para mais uma "Passagem". A Performance teve lugar dia 1 de Junho no Parque Aquilino Ribeiro (Parque da Cidade) no âmbito do Festival "Viseu A 01 do 06".

A PIA deixa aqui o seu especial agradecimento, a Nuno Loureiro, aluno do curso de Artes Plásticas e Multimédia, da Escola Superior de Educação de Viseu, que integrou o processo de implementação desta muito especial Instalação.

Acima o registo fotográfico captado pelo olhar de João Lopes, Nuno Loureiro e José Alfredo, também o "best off" do evento pela Dão TV.
Esta "Passagem" teve também direito ao olhar especialmente transformado em palavras, da escritora inglesa Julie Dawn Fox. 
"The highlight for me was a piece called Passagem (Passage) in Parque Aquilino Ribeiro.
Drawn to the white strings hanging from the trees like a moth to a flame, I found an ‘old’ woman in a long red skirt and white blouse knitting and reminiscing. After a while, she stood up, high above the crowds because of her stilts, and hobbled away. Some people followed her but I went off to find out what was happening at another corner of the park. Stringy chandeliers with red shoes dangled from the trees and an old man with a pair of shoes hanging around his neck started to move off. I joined the crowd and followed him past the pond where I found the knitting lady and another old woman chatting away in animated silence. At this point, I’d lost track of the old man. A cry from beyond the crowd drew my attention. Another old man had spotted the ladies and was reaching out to them as he lurched in their direction. A lonely old man spots some single ladies. The women looked up with expectation and delight before shyly fussing over their appearance. Hopelessly hormonal woman that I am, I found myself welling up at the emotional scene unfolding in front of me. My tears were quickly replaced by moments of laughter and surprise as the characters formed couples then danced together as a group. Their masks covered most of their faces and it amazed me how much emotion can be conveyed by eyes and mouths. Tired of dancing but not of each others’ company, the new friends stumbled off together, stopping at each of their homes to collect a momento. Kids and adults alike followed as they tottered from one section of the park to another in silent Pied Piper fashion. As they stopped to wave goodbye to the audience before leaving the park, my own chin was quivering and I was grateful that my tears were mostly hidden behind sunglasses. The performance was inspired by an Aboriginal proverb which translates as something along the lines of: “We are all visitors to this time and place. We are just passing through. Our objective is to observe, to grow and to love. Then we go home.” Each of the characters begins in a solitary space, surrounded by objects and their memories. When they come together and find happiness and love, it serves as a reminder that even towards the end of our lives, we can find happiness and solidarity in the company of others. The performance, called Passage, is the work of PIA (Projects of Artistic Intervention)."
