Improv your life is a simple concept: think and act outside your normal self for a little while. Be someone else for a few minutes. Act out a fictional scene with a partner you've never met, or just meet someone because they smell nice...
All of us today know that the calendar prevails over the whim, that reason trumps feeling, that rationale wins out over intuition, that the promise of a pay-off is worth more than the potential for surprise... Fie to all this! In the resilient depths of the human soul lies a mysterious ability... to improvise! Yes, you heard, to improvise. Sometimes we can say and do things, even become someone that we had not previously planned.
The gods of quotidianity shake their heads in their dark towers, but you are not afraid. Come flirt with chaos. Some believe that it is in our genes to thirst for the unexpected and the unknown. Others suggest that it is better than sex. Some even believe that herein lies the real heart of what makes us human in the first place... But this is a debate that cannot be argued with words... Sp get your bodies and souls involved! We dream of nothing more and nothing less than to improv your life.
Our project will provide a space, comprised of a 25m2 tent and an outdoor shaded area, where a variety of improv-related activities and installations will be set-up for the benefit of all who wish to partake.
Some workshops will be *cough* scheduled *cough, hypocrites*, such as: improv acting sessions, live music sessions, smell-based dating activities, and other such insanity.
Other activities will be ad-hoc and openly accessible on a whim, such as:
-The conversation-tent: obtain a new identity and prompt for an improvised interaction with a total stranger who is also temporarily someone different!
-The non-denominational confessional: a mailbox-booth where you can write anonymous letters to a well-wishing correspondent and expect a response by the morning post. All questions/concerns/problems are appropriate, even if they're not real.
etc. etc. etc. and so on and so forth. You might even be able to improvise your own workshop if you're very friendly about it. Did someone say impro-Tantra?
We can't wait to see you there, whoever you may become...
One is a writer, musician and actor from Switzerland. Another is a writer and artist based in Copenhagen

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.
