Gardenparty is moving into a house in Tartu and you are invited to come and visit us!

Our daily schedule will be published here where you can see exactly what we have planned for the days. 

With an attitude of positive nihilism we will attempt to create a living situation of bliss and beauty: a safe haven, shielded from fears of the future. Surrounded by never-fading plastic flowers we delve into nostalgia for the past and the present.

As children of the nineties we cherish the pop culture of those days, dig into our childhood memories and contemplate on our different upbringings in Denmark and Estonia. We sweep away the problems under a soft flannel carpet and immerse ourselves in domestic dreams in the nineties nest.

There will be a broad variety of items on the to-do list: plant watering, bedroom choreographies, spaghetti boiling symphonies, dinner parties, cleaning, book readings, movie watching, gardening, exercising and much more. You are welcome to come and go, follow our day, hang out, clean, eat and play with us. 

The events in the house will be live streamed to the universe - so tune in! 

The house will be open from 21th-23rd of August from 11:00 until 21:00 & on 24th of August from 11:00 until 20:00. Be sure to check the daily schedule below before attending (our Facebook event is here).

Gardenparty is an experimental stage collective exploring space, text and matter with a choreographic eye. This is Gardenparty’s second project following Correction from 2018 that toured in Denmark and Estonia. The original team Tobias Shaw, Maret Tamme and Anders Tougaard is now joined by Estonian scenographer Keili Retter and actor Laura Niils.


The house is open from 11 to 21 and you are welcome at any time. Life never stops. If you want to join the PLANTBASED meals, please be so kind to bring something for the table.
