MOMENTUM

Momentum - is an immersive art exhibit, a mix of the stunning artworks of Neo-Expressionist Shlomo Tuvia and the “game” touch of Olia Oparina.
Innovative, team-driven experience, where guests recreate incredible artworks, using non-traditional materials and clues, in order to reveal the main secret of the evening.
In this particular exhibit, all guests are divided into several groups. Each group is given 1 hour and 1 or 2 paintings to recreate. In order to successfully complete it, you’ll have to find certain objects and also interact with other teams.

 

"Momentum proved that the actors in experiential theater can be 2D and made of paint immersed in the backdrop of a canvas."
