Jul 19th, Saturday from 11am till 4pm

Riga, Kalnciema Quarter, Kalnciemа 35 iela

Cardboardia DIY Theatre 
part of Paper Object Festival

Cardboardia is a country that cherishes its traditions and customs. Cardboardia’s Tyran, as the nation’s democratically elected leader, especially encourages manifestations of people’s collective creativity. We create the kind of spaces where each and every one can find a way to express herself or himself. They are also the spaces to make new friends and meet the old ones.

Just like respected states ought to, Cardboardia has a Ministry of Culture that coordinates the work of all national theatres, including the Cardboard Academic Theatre of Cardboardia. Late fall of 2013 was marked by the foundation of yet another theatre, the Cardboard DIY Theatre, that has its first international tour scheduled for Jul 19th in Riga, as a part of the Paper Object Festival.

Cardboardia DIY Theatre invites you to learn working with cardboard to make performances and stage plays. The invitation is open to everyone interested – parents with children, groups of people, loud or modest, grandmothers and grandfathers – everyone will have a chance to become a screenplay writer, decorator, actor, or director!

Cardboardia’s personages will tell the fascinating story of the home theatre, teach the science of creating with cardboard, and take part in the rehearsals. And of course we can all enjoy the plays created together, funny, absurd, or naïve.

If you are interested in ideas for engaging DIY activities and learning how to make a memorable family event, or simply want to spend an excellent time with your friends and your children – sign up and come to see us!
