A magical place for party, visuals, music, dancing, performances and chill out! To build a whole area inspired by an ancient Amphi Theatre, evolving around a sound stage in the middle and a lot of different things going on around.
It's nice to get lost - in space and time - in a place where you forget your own presence and existence. We want to create an environment, where it's possible to stay for as long as you wish, and still be able to get back in an instant. Our dream is to create an on-going build-up of an Amphi Theatre, soundstage and dancefloor! A village within the village of The Borderland, with it's own fantasy infrastructure- revolving around a soundstage in the middle and dreamy things going on around it. A place where you can get all your senses stimulated by visuals, sound, movement, feel and taste.
In the centre of this amphi theatre, we want to build a stage where creatures can share what they do best - in terms of music, performances, yoga, lyrics, love etc and very importantly - a place for dancing. Where day- and nocturnal creatures of the Borderland can come out to play- there's always something going on at Umfi Umfi!
We have a green fairy that will serve her magical green absinthe potion and read tarot cards and maybe we'll have a candy booth for the sweet toothed to indulge and a glitterbooth too. We want to make a magical forrest with strange things growing. We dream of creating a big cuddle puddle where people can look at all the freaks around them or simply get lost in a daydream. We will also make an area where the creatures can seek shelter from rain or sun. Pathways of LED and UV lights in the night to guide people around. If possible we want to make a "stairway to heaven" where people can sit on a viewpoint bench, and have an overlook of the whole crazy scenery. We want to build wood trolls, mirror skys, huge sparkly dreamcatchers and over-dimensioned lamps and for everthing to come to life in a total dream-glitter-colour-mania- soap bubble-explosion!
We wish to find a place at the Borderland that can give this village a true feeling of an amphi theatre. First we hoped for the place called "Gryden", but due to nature + noise causes, we would love to take the beach instead!
We aim to use a lot of secondhand and recycled materials, but will also have to purchase a thing or two.
We are a group of friends who love building, painting, creating, decorating, sharing, arranging and we have a passion for playing great (dance) music! We welcome co-creators , co-builders and co-performers to join us in creating this dream space and stage!
We - a team of 5-8 people - will arrive a week early, to build the basic structure and start decorating, and from there, our dream is that this theatre will continously grow and evolve during the week of Borderland, and that we will have enough deco, paint and materials so that people, if they want - can contribute to the building, decoration and developing of this magical dream place!
We will have some garbage bags around, but we encourage people to take their trash with them. Also we are very good at MOOPing and will do so every day. It will be done with huge love for the nature!
10.000 DKK - fabrics, mattresses, pillows, paint, decor materials, UV paint, art materials of all kinds !
6.000 DKK - wood, planks, plywood, cords, etc
3.000 DKK - transportation of the above + the soundsystem from Sweden (Hampus has details)
5.000 DKK - lights lights lights
3.000 DKK - tarpaulins, shelter materials (maybe secondhand shipping sails? Anyone? )
3.000 DKK - organic Acai booth with energy smoothies for the dancing people
Its a big dream of ours to create a magical and quite big place that can hold many BL creatures simultaneously around the clock.
Note: Many materials can be recycled for next year! :)
Everyone can co-create and contribute to the Umfi Umfi Theatre! Performers and visual artists and other creative creatures can send their request if they want to share anything. We will try to make a plan of the events going on on the stage, and a info board by the entrance. We already have some performers and DJ's lined up and have borrowed a sound system to make it possible. We also need help building and constructing and decorating. If you have an idea for a small booth of any kind, we are open!
If you have decor we can borrow or wood and tools and if you know how to use a hammer and a saw - lets us know!
Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.
