Place: Denmark. Material: Body and costume wood and moss. Category: Performance. These two performances stages different emotions related to nature. We can experience nature as being peaceful and friendly and as a force outside human control. In both sceneries, the human body represents limitation and structure, in contrast to nature, which is seen as eternal/endless and chaotic.  Manuscript: Both performances are made as a ritual. After the ritual all clothes that were worn during the walk were used as material. The ritual walking was made in landscapes shifting from one character to another. In first performance, the shore is shifting to ocean, and in second the dunes become meadow and forest.
