Join an immersive journey that will stimulate all your senses!
Trials of Money turns the theatre into a court of justice which does not yet exist. You’re invited to take part in the Special Tribunal for Semi-Human Persons in order to undertake the trial of the thing called ‘money’.

Should money be found guilty, it leaves us with a very problematic question: what could be a just sentence?
