Second Landscape is the third part of a trilogy devoted by Marina Mascarell to performativity. Preceded by A hefty flood (for the Nederlands Dans Theater) and Valley (for the GöteborgOperans Danskompani), this piece explores how images influence and seduce us, and model our perception of reality, in a world where the fetishisms of images and idolatry are the pillars of our behaviour. Mascarell proposes rethinking our relationship with images as a mode of dominant expression and discussing the immaterial nature of this new world through body and dance.

Marina Mascarell has a unique way – poetic and full of nuances – of expressing her commitment to society through dance. In 2015 she was awarded the prestigious BNG Bank Dance Prize, in recognition of her notable artistic talent and projection. Mascarell has worked as an independent choreographer since 2012. She has created shows for major companies such as the Nederlands Dans Theater I in The Hague (UpComing Choreographers), Scapino Ballet in Rotterdam, Taipei Dance Forum, Ballet Junior in Geneva, Skånes Dansteater in Malmö and the Ballet de l’Opéra in Lyon. In her creative work she continually ventures into territories she is unfamiliar with to discover new material. Her work deals with the world we live in, the choices we make, and their consequences. It goes far beyond simple appearances or pure aesthetics.
