About på besøk i en fremmed kropp* (visiting an unknown body)

på besøk i en fremmed kropp* (visiting an unknown body) (2005) is a production by Tone Avenstroup.

"Dear visitors, we are now at the sand. between the western road and otra. on a plain of pine trees, a plain of sand. we are in the city on the sand. it is the first day in the new year. it has started raining again, but other than that, everything is like it usually is." (Text from the information board, Tone Avenstroup. The punctuation belongs to Avenstroup.)

"The landscapes are so beautiful they tend to arise suspicion, one thinks: here must something be hidden beneath!" (Jens Bjørneboe) 

"Nowhere the sun settles as beautifully as in the garden of your childhood." (Wilhelm Krag)

*Not yet translated into the English. The title within parentheses is the Norwegian title's literal meaning.
