  • Summary

    Wish for any toy (prop, gift, costume accessory) and watch it come to life in the hands of a latex professional! This is a very playful dream for the young Kinder, but will also be available for the young-at heart. Balloons are biodegradable; no worries!

    Full description of the concept

    I'm The Balloon Lady, a children's entertainer who can make (almost) anything out of balloons. How often has someone said: if only we had a _____ right now? Do you feel like a forest fairy, but need wings to take flight? Did you meet a beautiful person but lack the perfect gift? Are you a mad hatter without a hat? A newly-appointed Elven king without a crown? Would a streamer made of latex lemons help to beautify your lemonade stand? Care for a wearable horse to transport you to the saloon? No? A perhaps unicorn? Your wish is my command!

    Want something wacky? Something kinky? Something to appease the raging Muttis? Perhaps you could use a lamb made of rubber for a vegan ritual slaughter? Or a crossbow for a long-range duel?

    The catalyst for fun has arrived.

    PS: With more votes, more opportunities could include a balloon twisting workshop, a magic show, or decorations in the laneways.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    This is interactive theatre and co-creative art. A new toy originates in the mind of a burner, and after it is made, it takes on a life of its own, as burners play with it, gift it, or wear it.

    If there is interest and a decent budget for balloons, burners can also learn to twist in a workshop!

    • What’s your ecological footprint? * Balloons can be moopy, but...: * They create a fraction of the waste compared to art made with other materials * The waste is biodegradable * Popped long balloons can be repurposed as rubber bands. * When popped, the material generally remains in one piece (easy disposal) * No strike is necessary * Rule: since balloons can pop at any time, only burners with a moop bag may request one.
