    THE AZYLUM!

    ------

    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.

    The Reception:
    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.

    The Hallway:
    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.
