Over

Roosmarijn Mascini (b.'85 Haarlem NL) is writing short texts, draws and makes musical plays together with Wies Arts. Often text and image come together in long term projects and collaborations with different projectgroups, where personal points of view merge into shared experience.

Recently she is working on a series of narratives in song and dialogue, that evolves around characters that are all experiencing some kind of struggle with hiding themselves. In a world that seems fully enlightened and known, keeping things out of the light is considered as either theft or self destructiveness and those who are doing so are ignored, accused of being miserable or being not real at all. The self extended story consists of short scenes that are rehearsed and performed by a group of people that changes every ten weeks. The (musical) scenes are filmed at different locations outside and add up to the story archive. Scenes can be added from anywhere and get their shape through the participating people and the location of a working period. Therefore the project can travel as a mobile concept.
