Candyland

Theresa Neumann

Summary

Do you sometimes fantasize about this magical world, where rivers are full of sweet tea, mountains of chocolate, trees grow all sort of sweets, gingerbread houses and marshmellow clouds? Welcome to Candyland!

Full description of concept

I would love to build a magical wonder - candyland, its a place where you enter into a complete different universe, where nothing is like you know it. Candy everywhere. Things upside down. Strange Beings. Weird candysconstructions. Come there to hang out, to eat Candy.To meet other Candy-loving Beings. Come to dream together. Come there to wonder.
I am thinking of builing a small gingerbread house, really tiny, you have to crawl through it in order to get into the main- candyworld. That should be a closed room, with extra exits, not bigger then 30m2. Its a wonderful coulourful decorated room, full of candy.Candy on the walls, hanging from trees and the ceiling, candyflowers.... I would like to add some special features like different characters, that play some theater and welcome our guests with some kind of ritual or serve some drinks. There should be music and lighting. I would like to organise a cream-cake fight as well.

My dream is still vage, though i have a lot of cool ideas, but its not thought through yet at all. So i am not sure, if this dream is ready to be realized this year already. At least i need people to join me. I dont know, how big the project should be - it could be a really big thing or maybe just a small thing like a portable Candyland Costume Thing or a cream-cake fight.... I also dont really know, what i need for realizing it and how much money i would need.

Its a very decadent dream it feels like, but i would like to make it as sustainable and ecological as possible - for example by buying ecological candy.....

I am also not sure about handling the heat and what kind of candy i should use, that doesnt get to affected by heat.....

So if somebody feels called to join this project or a version of this project and have a talk, contact meeee :)

Team and plan

I need a team :) I most probably wont realize this dream this year if i am alone. And like i said, maybe this year its only going to be a small portable candyland something.....

Moop plan (matter out of place)

i guess a lot of little paper/plastic pieces from the candy. i will collect it and take it home with me.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

Join me :) You also get some chocolate hihihi :)

What is this?

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.

    Details

  • Do you need electricity from the grid? Yes and dont know how much

  • Will there be light? Yes, dont know how

  • Will anything burn? Hopefully nothing will burn, will figure out a fireplan later.

  • What is your audio footprint? a little bit, some music

  • Forces of nature I would definitely need to build some structure around Candyland that keeps the rain away, if it will rain....

  • Next random dream
