  • Summary

    The Castle invites you to awaken your senses and change or intensify the mood you bring into the space. The vision of the Castle is two split, altering from meditative by playing with sand to more energetic with dance karaoke!

    Full description of the concept

    The vision of the Castle will change during the week as the ideas of the Kinetic Sand Gang has had creating it. We both want to playful and silly with the possibility to relax and go into yourself, or why not into another character?

    The playfulness part will include dancing, we love dancing! Have you ever tried dance karaoke, it is awesome and something we want to share with you. Can you twerk? No? Great, let's learn it together and then show it of at the closest sound camp.

    We also want the Castle to be a space where anyone can come and have a workshop, either if you have a lot of experience with e.g. hypnosis or if you can act as you do and want give us a course. In the camp have a self acclaimed master at slipping on banana peels that will reveal the three steps to become a professional slipper.

    If the habitants of the Castle want to change the mood of the space into something more calm and meditative we will have tools for it. There will be lots of fluffy pillows and access to play with kinetic sand, sand gardens, fabrics of different textures, slime, bubble wrap etc. The Castle will also be a starting point for walking meditation where we will walk around the quarry and discover it with our senses.

    There might pop up a hidden bar, a mini waterfall and most possible something we figure out a week before the event.

    To avoid MOOP we'll have all the extra terrestrial sand inside a confined space where enjoy the goodness of sand. After the event the sand will not stay in the quarry but will be used to plant bananas for next years banana slipping workshop.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Yes! If you feel like the Castle could be the space for you to realize your dream contact us before or in the quarry!

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. The Dreams Platform is a place where participants share their dreams.


    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? 800 W of power for LED-lights inside and out, projector, water pump and music (medium / low volume).

    • Will there be light? Yes! The Castle will be lit up so that you can see what you stumble into and inside a projection of dance videos or a star sky.

    • Safety implications We will secure the Castle with rebar if a storm would hit us and have visible fire extinguishers in case of fire.

    • What is your audio footprint? You will not hear a pin hit the floor, but we will not make the ground shake in the same beat as the music or disturb neighbours
