Cardboardia is a country without territory. It was founded 10 years ago and is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. The state is independent and not connected with any natural resources, just people’s creative energy! Ruled by the formidable Tyran they are always searching for new creative energy supplies in humanoid form! This year to uncover new supplies they are developing the new science of Foolosophy. These pop-up performances throughout the weekend promise to be unpredictable and thoroughly entertaining!

Together with all experimental specimens we will cultivate seeds and carefully grow them during the next 12 months from Festival of Thrift 2017 to Festival of Thrift 2018! In September 2018 we are planning to come back, check the results and harvest pure happiness!

If you want to join us as a foolosophy scientist, or  assistant please join our workshop on 21 and 22 September, check information and register here:
