THE MECHANICAL GARDEN (Nymark / Sævik / Kloster, theater)

The two friends Fio and Lyria live in a beautiful garden where they plant vegetables and enjoy apple cake, tea and music every day. One day a mysterious figure enters the garden and wants to hang a new bird box. Fio politely says no, since he just made a bird box. At night the mysterious figure sneaks into the garden again, and changes the bird box in the alley. After this mysterious things begin to happen to the garden. It becomes more and more mechanical, and the friendship of Fio and Lyria is set on trial. The two friends travels underground to a dark and mechanical world. Here they meet the creatures Pappa Potet, a Hacker Robot and a King who controls everything. Will the friends manage to save the garden from becoming completely mechanical?

Den Mekaniske Hagen is a play written by the three friends, visual artist Camilla Kloster, musician and composer Knut Sævik and musician Lena Nymark. The piece should be experienced as a mixture between theater and cartoon, where animation is constantly projected on the scenes.
