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 at the corner of Albertinkatu and Iso Roobertinkatu 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.

Duration: 10 to 30 min
Audience: 1 visitor at a time
Language: English or Swedish
Age limit: 18+
Place: At the corner of Albertinkatu and Iso Roobertinkatu 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.
