Borderland is intense. Where can you go to recharge and land back in yourself? At the (Anti) Social Recharge Space! We offer a daily space for introversion and awesome workshops to explore how you meet the world.
Imagine a space where you can simply BE with yourself without connecting with others. We welcome you to the (Anti) Social Recharge Space.
How do you like to relax? Because you will more than likely find what you need in our cosy tent: books, drawing tools, teddy bears, chill music and much more.
The core of our offering is a daily space for introversion. For several hours each day you are welcomed to come to the Recharge Space and be with yourself, with no need to connect or interact. You can do anything you want in this space as long as it doesn’t involve engaging with others. This happens in a group space, with others doing the same, allowing you to be with yourself without having to be by yourself. Isn't that cool?
Alongside this core offering we'll run workshops to help you explore the theme of Inside / Out: the place where you (inside) meet the world (out). These will include:
* Workshops to explore and bring life to different facets of your personality
* Teddy bear therapy session
* Self awareness games
* A session developing participatory performances around the theme of connection
* Cacao ceremony to support getting in touch with what's alive in you
Our minimum funding will cover a beautiful space, with lights and cosy interiors to hold the space for introversion; plus a few workshops for all you lovely burners to participate in.
If you trust us with more funds, then you'll be able to enjoy an even plusher and cosier interior to recharge your social batteries, plus extra workshops that require specific materials, including the cacao ceremony,

PS you might have spotted another space for introversion on the dream platform. Our dream is different from that marvellous vision in two ways. Firstly, the core concept: in our tent, there can be up to 20 people in the space at the same time, all introverting and being in their own space. Secondly we offer a bunch of workshops that explore the relationship between your experience (inside) and how it meets the world (out). We heartily encourage you to support both dreams, since The Borderland needs these precious spaces for introspection and self-enquiry.
We are a group of Borderlings who are curious about how to get the most out of this wondrous co-created event. Some of us met at Tantric Tipi last year and others through circling and Copenhagen burns. We come together around a love of theatre, self-enquiry, introversion and play.
We will have arts & crafts workshops which may result in moop. Our facilitators will remind the participants to collect their moop at the end of each session. Any remaining moop will be dealt with during the end of the festival by the Inside // Out family - we will have a moop station set up to take care of everything and ensure we leave no trace.

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.
