In the last days of august we finally had a real russian Cardboardia project in the Netherlands! The Spoffin festival invited our russian friends to Amersfoort to make a giant parade.
For those who don’t know Cardboardia yet: it’s a larger than life project from Russia. Sergej Korsakov, the uncompromising leader, is the axis around which cardboardia turns. The projects are theater, temporary social experiments, creative economies and visual arts all rolled in to one. We went to one of the materialisations in the form of a city in Perm. The cardboardia projects always have some story to it, they mostly evolve around the visions and fantasies of Tyran of Cardboardia, but leaving a lot of space for participants to realize a cardboard version of their own dreams.
Cardboardia Amersfoort was a parade of Tyran’s dream machines, characters, toys and games. It was big fun having the cardboardians around and working with them again. It seems our big dream: creating a worldwide cardboarders event is coming closer and closer!
