  • Summary

    A mute and masked wanderer has come to the Borderland with sensory experiences pulled out from a weird backpack with a fragrance of wild herbs. Ritual sessions one-o-one or in groups are to be expected together with some soothing and exhilarating gifts.

    Full description of yer concept

    What's that walking slowly as if through a storm? And what about that weird structure on its back?
    A masked, weary traveller has come from a falling world where words lost the sound and thus, the language has been forced into the form of the remaining senses. It came to share some soothing and exhilarating gifts with us. Tonu the Traveller might have a natural remedy for you who are in need of rest or a spicy buzz. (Herbal, don't do drugs kids!)

    Tonu’s Teas & Talismans is a wandering breeze of calm air for restless souls. But also a wild fire for the ones whose in for a sensory experience that might make you want to kick off your feet and run away on your knees. 
There’s something for everybody and who knows, Tonu might single you out or let your friends join for a ritual session. You may need a protectional gift for safe journeys into the unknown future, and this traveller might have the right thing for you.

    About the crew / artist

    I'm a circus & multi artist who want's to change direction, to involve the audience in the performance rather than standing on a stage. I've created worlds before and are more exited now than ever!

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    All things I use will be collected after each session (metal cups, a mat, instruments). Nothing will be left except some eventual drops of water.

    What is this?

    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.

    • Will there be light? I have two ideas I must try out which is: A) Electrical lights in form of LEDs. B) UV-lights from above held by a structure in the backpack that illuminates fluorescent colors painted over the installation and character.

    • Will anything BURN? I will be carrying a lantern with me, but in case of a fireban I will switch it for solar-powered lights.

    • What is your audio footprint? I will be bringing a drum, rattles and bells. I cannot take responsibility for screaming or moaning partcipants¯\_(ツ)_/¯
