Belle Époque

Camp Carnifornication

  • 88






  • Summary

    La Belle Époque is an absinthe themed bar. A place where you can relax and travel back in time to the golden age of absinthe. Take a break from the dancing and frolicking to enjoy a refreshing drink, engaging conversation and a warm, mysterious atmosphere

    Full description of the concept

    The bar will be located inside a tent. It will feature comfortable seating and a bar counter specially designed and built to fit our concept. Decorations will be inspired by the Belle Époque (French for "Beautiful Era") and create a warm, mysterious atmosphere. You can enjoy the bar in whichever way you wish. Relax with a refreshing drink, interact with your fellow borderlings, or do something completely different.

    The bar will offer a selection of absinthes. These will be served in the traditional manner, where slow drips of ice cold water gradually release floral aromas that range from the the swedish forests to the swiss alps. We will also have other drinks available, naturally including non-alcoholic ones.

    About the group/Artist

    This project is brought from dream to reality by Camp Carnifornication. A new camp consisting of both experienced burners and people attending Borderland for their first time. In addition to this project, we will also have updated versions of carni-games and other activities.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    If any fellow borderlings wants to sign up for a shift at the bar, that would be appreciated.
    We also have room for a few more in our camp.

    Valuable Equipment: We would like to buy a tent and some equipment for serving absinthe. These will be used in future burns and provide long term benefit to the community. We will use our own tools. Transport: We will need to rent a trailer in order to transport the bar to the borderland. Consumables & Intoxicants: All consumables (including absinthes and other intoxicants) will be covered by camp funds and are therefore not included in the grant proposal.

    What is this?

    • Will there be light? We will light the bar using various LEDs.
