The two friends Fio and Lyria live in a beautiful garden where they plant vegetables and enjoy eating applepie, drink tea and listen to music every day. One day a mysterious figure enters the garden and wants to hang a new bird box. Fio politely says declines, since he has just hung a new bird box. That night, the mysterious figure sneaks back into the garden, and changes the bird box in the garden. After this, mysterious things begin to happen to the garden. It becomes more and more mechanical, and the friendship of Fio and Lyria is put to the test. The two friends travel underground to a dark and mechanical world. Here they meet the creatures Pappa Potet, a Hacker Robot and a King who controls everything. Will the friends manage to save the garden from becoming completely mechanical?
Den Mekaniske Hagen is a play written by the three friends, visual artist Camilla Kloster, musician and composer Knut Sævik and musician Lena Nymark. The play will be experienced as a mixture between theater and cartoon, where animation is constantly projected on the scenes.
