Cardboardia Embassy in Riga
2014-07-02 | events, announcement, workshops
In the early beginning of 2014 the Tyran of Cardboardia approved a road map for expanding the country's international relations over the next 5 years. The first step to be taken is to open the european embassy of Cardboardia in Riga, Latvia.
As the Tyran's administration representatives assure, embassy's major function would be to facilitate meetings at the summit, holding Cardboardia's national celebrations, and promote materializations of Cardboard Towns across the EU countries.
A number of cultural events are to be held each year. The projects will be carried out by the general contractor of the Tyran's administration, "Made in Cardboardia" creative studio that will open a workshop as a part of the embassy.
Cardboardia's personages are determined to strengthen cultural ties with the countires of the Baltic region, with focus on Latvia.
Tyran is personally directing the opening of the embassy and will thus be making an extended visit to Riga. We will be delighted to welcome the press and everyone else interested in establishing contact to the embassy between Jul 20th and 26th.
Thank you for reaching us at +7 916 650 7360 and making an appointment beforehand.
A special event
Jul 19th, (Paper Object Festival, Kalnciema Quarter, Kalnciema 35 iela) we invite you to a performance of Cardbodia's DIY Theatre. It is a theatre created and run by the audience.

Cardboardia’s Street Performance Lab in the Netherlands
2014-07-12 | events, announcement, festivals, workshops

AUG 26th - AUG 31st 2014, 12pm to 7pm

Cardboardia’s Intensive Street Performance Lab 

@ Spoffin Festival in Amersfoort, Netherlands

Venue for workshop: Kunsthal KAdE, Smallepad 3

Personages of Cardboardia are happy to welcome anyone who wishes to create big, perform loud and parade the streets of Amersfoort!

If you want to learn creating with cardboard or get better at what you already know; if you are looking for a powerful experience, for being a part of a large creative project and making new friends - join us at the Lab!

The Lab has two major Modules:

Module 1 - Designing costumes and objects for interactive performances

Module 2 - Street performance and communication with the public for beginners

Throughout the several days of our intensive Lab we will create a large-scale interactive space and prepare a city parade of cardboard awesomeness.

In Module 1, designers will learn basic and advanced techniques of creating costumes, decorations and objects from cardboard. The program could be particularly interesting for artists and architects, school teachers and designers.

Those who take part in Module 2 will go through the entire cycle of preparing a city event - adapting the concept to the location, preparation and management. The module is curated by a brilliant street theater director, so we especially welcome stilt walkers and other performing artists to take part. You will learn the basics of interaction with the audiences, exchange stilt walking and performing experience and get to improvise in a new eclectic team.

The Lab will end in a series of performances throughout 28-31 of August.

Curators of the Street Performance Lab are:

Spyros Andreopoulus (actor, director, stilt performer, founder of Motus Terrae Theatre Company) and Olesya Kandalintseva (artist, designer, workshop curator at Made in Cardboardia).

Participation in the Lab is free, yet the number of participants is limited. Groups will be formed following the results of online interviews.

Lab participants will need to take care of their daily expenses and costs of travel and stay in Amersfoort (Netherlands).

In order to take part in the Lab you need to fill out the application form, complete a test piece and receive the confirmation from the curator.
