  • Summary

    We are going to offer an unique multisensory performance, where the experiencer's body and mind are in the centre. By being blindfolded and sitting down, we produce a nonverbal journey to the inner self of the experiencer.

    Full description of the concept

    There is a tent, there are two servants, there will be six experiencer, there is a journey.
    We invite people to come and relax on an unique journey which is experienced by oneself and by a group of six people at a same time. The experiencer will be guided to sit down and to take a blindfold. The experiencer will receive a wireless headphone system and will be guided through a 20 minute long journey where she/he will be in the centre of. There will be music, nature, smells, and other sensations we rarely have time to concentrate on in the every day life.

    After the Seat of Sensation, the experiencer will be asked to join on a different ride without moving her/his body. This journey is called The Reality Tunnel and is performed without any special effects - just relying on the perception of the surroundings.

    The Seat of Sensation / The Reality Tunnel serves as a getaway and a small meditational experience. They focus on the four senses we usually forget - hearing, smelling, touching and tasting. How important it is to perceive the surroundings by those senses as well as the sight!

    We need a tent for eight people to stand in. This is the biggest concern. Maybe some kind of army tent would be big enough. We need some kind of carrier which can be operated by two people. We have no idea what the rent of these would be and even where could we get those. We need some food to serve during the performance. This could be any fruits or whatever we find suitable for our purposes! We need to transport everything to Borderland, including the wireless headphones from Finland (probably air luggage).
