TTS 2019 EVENTS
INTERACTIVITY is how theme camps earn their place in Black Rock City. We hope you’ll stop in and participate in some of our planned events. You’re also invited to drop by any time, even when no events are scheduled. Events? No events? Doesn’t matter! You’re a thing, so get over here and swing.
Opening SWING + DOME Lighting
Join us on our extra wide porch swing and enjoy the show as we illuminate our domes, do a little dance, and make a little love. Get down tonight!
You need it bad. You've been knuckle deep in the playa for days. You've got callouses on top of your callouses. Time to clean those cuticles, trim those nails, and get your hands ready to touch something softer than rebar. Vinegar solution, hand lotion, and nail polish will be supplied.
Receive rainbow body paint brush art where it is most needed.
Skirt Etiquette for Men
How to wear a skirt for those who have "things that swing". Some free skirts will be available for participants.
Herb to Tincture Workshop
Learn how to make a tincture out of herbs. You will make a tincture to take with you.
Swearing + Seduction in French
Putain! Tabarnak! We'll teach you how to swear in French, both Quebec and Continental. And to make you feel better after being insulted, we'll teach you how to seduce too, as well as the ways to give or refuse consent. Bring a notepad and a pen to take all these new words home!
Close Up Magic
Sexy Brown Magic will astound you with his tricks. Get ready to start believing and take a journey into the world of illusion.
“Heartbroken” Dance Party
Heartbroken? Feeling alone? Lost in the desert? Is your partner !@#!@#! a campmate? Don't cry alone in your tent. Hook up at Things That Swing.
Put YOUR fun in a FUNdoshi! Learn to tie a loincloth. Material will be provided or bring your own strip (approximately 1' x 8'). While supplies last.
Dream Session: chill electronic music and tea
Get ready to be transported by the beats in dreams. Served with mint tea. Genre: Downtempo, Slow Techno, World, Ketapop
Wednesday + Thursday, 3p-5p
Participate in a sensual network. Each person is a node, touch is how we connect, every exchange strengthens the social bonds. The name comes from our primate cousins, the Bonobo chimpanzees, who resolve the tension of conflict through intimacy rather than violence (most of the time). We've adapted grooming practices seen throughout the animal kingdom to activate good-vibe hormones, which signal feelings of safety, belonging, and well-being. This is a naked experience where you should expect to touch and be touched by someone you don't already know, within a carefully structured and monitored program. All are welcome.
Yoga gradually removes the false layers covering your true self. Begin with a powerful symbolic and liberating act: strip off your Cloth Layer. This all-levels practice will focus on awakening your largest sense organ to help ground you in the present moment.
X: 10 Year Party
You've done This Thing in the Desert 10 times? Really? You deserve a celebration! Join us for X: a celebration of all things 10.
For one hour, we will join forces and create radial patterns using basic yoga poses. This is next-level partner work, that's accessible to everyone, even total beginners. Be a petal on the blossom of life.
The name of the game is Toss Your Panties. What else do you possibly need to know? (We cannot be responsible for your panties once they’ve been tossed.)
You call it Friday, we call it FREEDAY. Grooves by DJ Divine Thud. Dance yourself clean!
The Final Swing
After the Temple burns, have a final swing before everything comes down in the morning. Listen to chill tunes, share a story, say good-bye.
