THE TENT

WHAT: THE TENT is a participatory piece by Blaue Frau. It’s a meeting between two performers and a visitor. We have temporarily placed a tent in an empty shop at Museokatu in Töölö because we thought that the world needs a place where difficult questions get clear answers.

In the tent, we have answers to all questions. Maybe not true, real or possible, but certainly clear ones. Welcome to our tent. It is full of sleeping bags, love, and intuition.

THE TENT will be performed both LIVE and DIGITALLY!

Duration: 30 to 45 min
Audience: 1 visitor at a time
Language: English or Swedish
Age limit: 18+
Place: Museokatu 36 in Helsinki

The original version of THE TENT was shown at Pauliina Turakka Purhonen’s exhibition “Hell and Glory” at Forum Box in Helsinki 2019. THE TENT was shown at Iso Roobertinkatu in Helsinki in November 2020.

INSTRUCTIONS: Do you have a question that you would like answered?
Book a time for THE TENT by emailing your name, the date & time you want to visit to joanna@blauefrau.com. NOTE! Please don’t write your question in the mail, but please tell us if you want to participate LIVE or DIGITALLY!

The performance is free of charge, but we are accepting gifts if you want to show your gratitude for our answer. What kind of gift and in which form, it’s up to you!
