The Booth (Hug Deli +)
This dream is inspired by Hug Deli at Burning Man . Imagine a booth that anyone can come up and "work at". The sign at the top can flip between advice booth, bad advice booth, sex advice, kissing booth, hug deli, and a blank one people can fill in.+props
The idea is an extended Hug Deli from burning man. At the original Hug Deli the booth is there and left 'empty'. Anyone passing by can go into the booth, put on an apron and start waiting on customers. People come up and order hugs. Long awkward hugs, bear hugs, posh valley girl hugs, and then pay for them with 2 compliments. Then the person working the booth serves up them hugs good and fresh.
I want to take this idea, but then add more. I want a sign at the top that rotates. It can be "Hug Deli", but it can also rotate to say "Advice booth", "Bad advice booth", "kissing booth", "sex advice", and an empty one with a white board marker where someone can write. There will be a list of other ideas written there for people to be inspired by such as "puppet theater", "dirty smut stories told live", etc. Depending on how the idea develops there might be a small costume box behind the booth with props. People come and order whatever the person working in the booth is selling, the recommended price is 2 compliments, but it can be whatever the people decide.
I have already done this once as a Halloween costume and want to make it larger and more accessible for others to come in and participate in and with.
The idea is to get people in interacting, playing, imagining. Also the person creating the space can choose what they are comfortable offering and so make the space really their own. One might be not interested in working a kissing booth, but extremely adept at giving subtlety, perniciously, horrific advice and so they should put up their sign and make it happen.
I am a long time Burner- originally from California. I love things that get people interacting and making up little worlds.
I will bring it home with me after.
It will be 6-8 m^2
Can contact me if you want to help build it. But ideally everyone helps create it at the event by being in it. It is just a space so it needs people to play with it and in it.
