A MasIng Productions invites the audience to a refreshing perspective on the environment in which we are located in, through their piece LAND SKAP. The duo experiments with how we observe movements and objects and what gets the focus through our and others’ choices. What lives in the landscapes surrounding us and what are beyond its borders?
The audience can wander around in a land full of boxes of various sizes activated when someone peers into them. Those who look in will look back on the landscape and the people in it as if it were a real-time movie. Some boxes have secret messages that only the most curious can find. Other boxes offer dance and music. In this landscape you can stay for hours or just make a short visit.
LAND SKAP is especially designed for each place it is performed. The video and images shows LAND SKAP at Garntørka in Son during Sånafest, which was the debut for Masako and Ingvild as A MasIng productions.
