Haugen Produksjoner describes the production Den Som Ser* (The One Who Sees) in the following way:

"The whole route was marked with red hearts. The audience members were at the start of the performance cleansed with sage and led through a heart meditation. Further they got to paint their own pictures while being sung for. The audience took part in making a wood sculpture after having seen dance and heard about the cycle of trees. They received healing, laid relaxed in a tent while listening to a text about seeing which was, among other things, about dragonflies, frogs and humans and how the different species are equipped with different biological characteristics and hence will see the same object in very different ways. This story was accompanied by guitar music.

Along the route the spectators also got to see the forgotten dress of an angel, met the master of their lives, got to do an exercise in trust, experience a drum journey during which they may have met their power animal, went with blindfolds, listening to Native American flutes, met a clown who allowed them to balance a line to find the balance in one’s own life plus get a laugh at one’s own cost, went in a labyrinth made by twigs and eventually they got to make their own despacho in which they could put all their wishes for their own lives.

At the end they were also served coffee, tea and biscuits around a bonfire. In addition to stations with performers there were also unmanned stations with encouragement to the spectators, words to reflect over and other directions. The nature and the river were also performers and important parts of the production."

Den Som Ser by Haugen Produksjoner was supported by the Sami assembly Sámediggi and the municipality of Tromsø.
