entry: a single coin to start the Booth
The project of the independent Belarusian “Kartonka” children theatre.
Sit comfortably and get ready for a unique story, created … by you! The Theatrical Booth will be launched exactly when you want it to. The theatre mechanism will start running, the story will begin, and the characters will act as you decide. Within three minutes you can create and watch a play produced by yourself. Welcome to the smallest theatre in the world!
The Theatrical Booth works similarly to a photo booth. A maximum of two people can enter. After the coin is thrown, a short performance will begin.
