Rope-body-mind-heart yurt

Andreas 'Andy Buru' Burmester


A tied rope is physical, emotional and mental dialogue between people, and ones own body, mind and heart. A yurt is an Mongolian round mobile structure built in wood and canvas. Together they fuse tranquillity and a zen-like experience.

Full description of concept

I want to bring my 12 feet/10^m2 yurt to offer a tranquil and zen-like space for body therapy. I'm teach and practice the Japanese rope art kinbaku/shibari so that would be my main focus as a session giver. I'm open for other body therapist and rope folks that wish to join. It's best if you also work directly on the floor/futon. The space will be tranquil and zen-like. An oasis outside the wild parties. Soft and warm. And hopefully a part of Federation Heart Glow.

Team and plan

So far its just me, and probably a body therapist friend if she can get a ticket.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

The yurt need transportation from Stockholm (or Ängsbacka/Karlstad) and back to Stockholm. And it needs other body therapist, session givers and rope people.

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.


  • Do you need electricity from the grid? Not much, one or two LED lights.

  • Will there be light? The yurt walls will allow light to pass outside, not very brigthly but softly glowing if place in a dark space.

  • Will anything burn? Maybe some incense. The yurt is treated for flame resistance and a fire blanket will be provided.

  • What is your audio footprint? No.

  • Forces of nature The yurt is very water resistant and tied down to the ground.
