Have you ever dreamt of being insane? Hungered for madness? Need a check up from your local holistic dentist? Or do you just love hanging out in hospital waiting rooms?
NOW YOU CAN!
In this Live Action Psychedelic Horror Comedy - The Azylum!
Mama Bear Productions and the makers of Monster Battle Arena, The Temphle of Unintentional Pointless Purpose, Evil Mutant Overlord Winetasting and The Slimepit - presents a new mad hit wonder!!
Have you ever dreamt of being insane? Hungered for madness? Need a check up from your local holistic dentist? Or just love hanging out in hospital waiting rooms?
NOW YOU CAN!
But wait - there is more!
Get diagnosed with yet unknown symptoms and frolicking brainworms. Try out the newest straitjacket. Go have a couples therapy. Or are you just tired of being sane, and need some ill action?
Concept: Participatory live action sitcom / Blarp
Genre: Psychedelic Horror Comedy (David Lynch meets Call of Chtulhu meets Fawlty Towers).
But how? (a walkthrough of The Azylum):
At Borderland this year you can admit yourself to an insane asylum.
The Waiting Room:
First you get to wait in a REAL waiting room, featuring; The reception, queue numbers, boring uncomfortable chairs, absurd magazines and pamphlets, muzak and a coffee machine that never works.
Fill out plenty of forms, get ignored, ring a bell, free placebo while waiting, wait in line, get cut in line, get your sanity questioned.
Creepiest and perhaps ONLY hallway on Borderland! You will be watched!
The Doctors Office:
This is where magic happens. Are you attending the holistic dentist (of the mind)? The mad medicine doctor? The witchdoctor from another dimension? The super duper therapist? A genuine fake doctor? Just need a quick lobotomy? Or do you need a full body surgery? All this and more can happen - to you!
The Azylum will be a physical buiilding made out of scaffolding. It will be 6 meters broad and 11 meters long. And 4 meters tall (3 meters in the sides). It will have wooden walls, that make up the different rooms in this installation. The building will be covered by heavy duty tarp.

Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
