One of the theaters in Catalonia (Spain), instead of the usual paper tickets, sells the most ordinary carrots at its box offices. This is how the management and the troupe of the theater expressed their dissatisfaction with the increase in VAT rates in the field of culture.
It is worth noting that representatives of creative professions in Spain have repeatedly stated their concern about the increase in VAT to 21%, which the authorities introduced in order to increase budget revenues. The cultural community believes that such approaches can simply kill the culture. As a result of the VAT increase, theater tickets will become more expensive, and this will lead to the fact that a certain part of the population will simply not be able to go to the performances.
The theater in Bescano and the PocaCosa Teatro troupe decided to fight the rise in ticket prices with creativity - in order to get to the theater, the audience must show the ticket collector a carrot purchased at the box office. Thus, the theater management tried to simulate the image of a peasant beckoning a stubborn donkey with a carrot, not a stick. The organizers of the protest believe that it should become a symbol of the state of culture - the increase in taxes will most likely become a stick that will finally discourage visitors from communicating with beauty.
On the very first day of the sale of unusual tickets, all 350 seats in the hall were filled, and signs "Carrots are over" appeared at the box office.
