Born of aquabooth and Ian's Neptunian surge,a pop-up playful place for expressions ,accoustic music, dance ,impro and joy.A deep, safe abode of calm power welling up into the trippiest of magic--singing hearts.
In a shelter rigged with old sea-blown ta

Full description of concept

In a smallish rigged shelter of old tarps, poles and ropes, and interior of deep-sea serenity will be created.
In this environment,with profound respect for the capricious whims of the source of earth's life-forms, we will float in our hearts'love and make music, movement and magic.
All of this will be in a flow of energy from other initiative and impulses around Borderland and it may at times gather energy and burst out as 'pop-up' celebrations with our neighbours and in far-flung realms.
The visual beauty of the intererior and its comfort level is the area most influenced by access to resources and the purchase of some used carpets,drapes ,soft-furnishingd,fabrics, dyes, and led lights etc will lift the experience.Some smoke, bubbles and air-movement too.

Team and plan

I get musical help from Blodmahl,and Medfafarparese intrerior decor Christophe dance and movement Carmen and others---I'm talking to people every day now who get excited and will help once I know the scale of it from a financial p.o. v. Time pllan is arrive as early as is allowed and build for a day---have pop up events day/evening / night--maybe join a paradeor go giiging around BL. PaSrike the structure and trailer it all home after helping with general site clearing.

Moop plan (matter out of place)

Only the kind of trash that a theatre audience might leave if there were no cafeteria--I expect to clear away a few small bags for recycling myself.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

Some help with the build. Some contribs of soft furnishings and paint/ dye / art work. The best way is to talk to me and follow up with facebook chats--I'm open to any gentle imputs that make making music dance and drama accessible to all levels of enthusiasts.

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 necessarlly, but it would add to the 'impact'.

  • Will there be light? Soft lights inside enough to see and play instrument--visible through thin side wall panels.

  • Will anything burn? No.

  • What is your audio footprint? We will make accoustic music which may occasionally have strong drum beats and choral singing volume as well as some brass wind instruments which 'carry' quite far bit all unamplified.

  • Forces of nature I have lots of rope and pland to make both hardwood and steel pegs to anchor the structure well. Ill use a good canvass or tarp for the roof and upper wall to throw off most rain and will raise the sides in the day s that it can air any damp from sidewind driven rain.
