MoraLand – a poetic, theatrical fairground
A land full of hope. An ancient legend.
MoraLand is a poetic, theatrical fairground, which draws its visitors into a cosmos of stories, fantastic figures and outlandish phenomena. Using a lyrical, sensory language, it describes a world whose inhabitants have decided once again to live in harmony with nature.
A NEW COUNTRY AND A POETIC THEATRICAL FAIRGROUND
The fascination of MoraLand lies in the unusual fairground arts performed, and the idea that it is possible to create our own world, which can be experienced by all the senses. Just as if entering an foreign land, the audience in MoraLand are confronted with a an unfamiliar language, strange rituals, songs, and a cosmos of unfamiliar lore.
During the night the fairground transforms itself into an open-topped circus tent: fairy lights, lampshades and paper-cut lanterns create a romantic atmosphere. The stalls and attractions run in a loop for around five hours. Visitors can experience magical images including vanishing snow, a giant kaleidoscope, a concert for open ears, and much more.
Strange lampshade figures search amongst the visitors for their future queen, who will sleep for one night in the huge bud of the Moorts plant. MoraLand is a fantastical dream world; it is experiential fiction and represents a new form of interactive theatre. Above all, however, it is a poetic parable about the relationship between humans and nature.
