Are you crazy?
Or stark raving sane?
And how far would you go to prove it?
At Vans Warped Tour 2014, musician, author, artist, and actress, Emilie Autumn is honored to present her "ASYLUM EXPERIENCE", an interactive environment featuring live musical and burlesque performances, sideshow circus attractions, and up-close-and-personal immersive theatre, all presented in her fantastical alternate reality known as "The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls".
Upon entering the all-day-long Asylum Experience, Warped Tour guests will be thrust into a visually stunning world policed by Victorian doctors and lunatic asylum guards, where striped-stockinged inmates attempt escape (will you help them or join them?), talking rats lead you on a hunt for hidden documents that may just secure your freedom, and a mad tea party proves to be more mad than Alice could ever have imagined (ours features an authentic Victorian electro-shock machine). With multiple tents and interactive elements to choose from and explore, numerous characters to follow, and endless secrets to uncover, every visitor will have a completely unique experience impossible to recreate. Audience participation is taken to a new level as the lines between performer and observer are completely blurred.
In the middle of the Asylum Experience festival area lies "The Cell", the main stage where Emilie and her glittering cast of lunatics will present her musical extravaganza stage show twice daily before being kidnapped and put back in their cages.
Emilie's personal mission of raging individuality, aggressive creativity, and social defiance through art finds her perfectly aligned with with the Vans Warped Tour's punk manifesto.
This summer, Emilie Autumn invites you to do the right thing and turn yourself in to the Asylum. She'll take...good...care of you...
Emilie Autumn is the author of 'The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls', an epic, internationally celebrated, autobiographical illustrated novel that documents her own experience as a so-called "crazy girl" within the mental health care system, as well as the fantasy world she was forced to create when her freedom was taken away. This world has since been brought to life on stage through her hundreds of performances as an internationally touring musician, and through her recordings, notably, her latest theatrical rock album, 'Fight Like A Girl'. Her novel and paintings are cited in medical journals and textbooks used as part of the psychology curriculum at Oxford University. In her film-acting debut, Emilie starred in the musical phenomenon that is Darren Lynn Bousman's (SAW II, III, & IV) 'The Devil's Carnival'
