Pushkin Ministry of Cardboardia
Cardboardia Ministry of Pushkin is a plot-role-playing performance, in the events of which we closely linked situations familiar to all of us that arise in any bureaucratic system with the subtle world of the Poetry of genius.

Pushkin's Ministry of Cardboardia is a venue with different offices where performances take place, and corridors ideally long for queues*.

«ecoming a Visitor to the Ministry, audience receive the most active role in which they need to perform certain routine actions that are dictated by the system of the Cardboardia Ministry of Pushkin.

Since all situations are conventional, recognizable and brought to the point of absurdity, they often cause:

cathartic laughter, sudden communication with other visitors and the realization that a person can be free in his expression without certificates / permits (including certificates / permits from the Pushkin Ministry of Cardboardia).

The Pushkin Ministry of Cardboardia may become non-Pushkin and work with the work of other authors or even different art forms.
