The Unreality of Time – Set design for a dance piece by Marina Mascarell (photo by Robert Benschop), Korzo Theater/Dance Forum Taipei, January-February 2013.
The stage is covered by 110 kilos of green lentils, which were manipulated by the dancers in order to create storms, landscapes and other obstacles within the theme of time.
– I worked with Marina since august 2012, exploring the properties of the lentils and designing the tools for the dancers to manipulate them. Lentils seem familiar and ordinary, and yet they move in their own ways, behaving like they’re trying to escape and occupy all spaces. – Ludmila
