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 because we thought that the world needs a place where difficult questions get clear answers. Do you have a question that you would like answered? 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 can be performed both LIVE and DIGITALLY.
