The beer tent as a place of exuberant dancing and celebration, but also of violence and exclusion, is the starting point for this choreographic re-exploration of the dance traditions of the Salzkammergut.

In the field of tension between excessive drinking, sexual objectification and community life, a utopian future is to be outlined that is characterised by inclusive tradition and breaks through binaries. ‘Bierzelt’ invites the audience to redefine and reshape the space of the beer tent together with the performers.

“Give me a beer or I’ll fall over / Let’s sit a little longer, stay a little longer / It’s fun and beautiful in the beer tent, you can’t go home / Beer tent music makes many hearts beat faster / I think a beer tent is a piece of heaven for many men.” – Grandad, 79
