NIGHT of theatres on UnderGara: one possible place for theater

/15 November 2014/


UnderGara was part of the NIGHT OF THE THEATERS. We met under the station where tried some warm wine and other sweets, settled comfortably in designer chairs, listening the stories of the people behind the project, it’s past and upcoming steps of development.


The topic which we’ve discussed was the alternative spaces for theater and UnderGara as a possible one.

Geo and his puppets have shown us that there is life in everything, with our without spirit, as long as we believe. This is how we went to the stage with Geo’s dolls in the Night of the Theaters.
