A cardboarders project is all about creating stuff together with visitors in a playful environment. We often use cheap, recyclable materials, trying to turn nothing in to something. Our projects include improvised creative games, tinkering, puppetry, lightpainting, animation, live-journalism, character design, costume making, storytelling, street theatre, set-design.

During our projects we became very skilled in getting participants enthusiastic and motivated to create stuff. We see art as an actionsport: participating in the process of making is more important than the endresults. Destruction of the things that are made (by using them) is often a part of the project!
We work in an atmosphere of absurdity and quirkiness, cherishing the freshness of amateurism. Treu creation comes from innocent pleasure of working together and a feeling of having nothing to loose.
Cardboarders is a loose group of artists working from the Netherlands, based in animation studio Reanimation.nl.

At Smeerboel Festival!

Of course we also brought all sorts of […]
At the opening of Klik! Animation Festival we wanted to make an animation with everyone in the audience at the same time! We gave all the 300 people in the audience a light which they can draw with on the screen! We made a little live survey using their drawings. A sort of live data […]
Balloons are the DNA of parties. Our crazy clown scientists take over the party bringing with them 10 balloons for everyone at the party. From the stage we explain that we need help recreating the party spirit animals. The only thing the audience has to do is to make as many connections as possible. We […]
