Opinion leaders about us
We asked, they responded
Actress of the plays "Opium" and "Suchilischa"
«I like unusual things, something new to me, it is always extremely interesting! This was the case of OK16. Frankly speaking, I was scared during the first rehearsals. «Whether will there a theatre magic in this former industrial space?» It took place, but it was a magic of another nature. An exceptional magic. All people of Ok16 (its team, spectators) are on the same page. Everyone smiles and this is wonderful! No matter what takes place here (an exhibition, a play, shootings, a party or a lady cleaning the floor, the space gives to do much and you want to go back time and again as a creator or a spectator!..»

Performer (Moscow)
«Oktiabrskaya is the livliest Minsk street gentrificated by the local community. The OK16 Hub is located at 16 bld. This is an urbanistic and nicely brutal space. One could feel, the OK16 team works hard to get the best and it succeds in that. The coolest things take place here. New ideas, formats and names are born thanks to efforts of such enthusiasts and this is very encouraging. The OK16 guys are hostitable, friendly and "human". Our work with you was a real pleasure!»
Creator and organizer of the parties "Мечта" ("Dream")
«The work with the OK16 team was my nicest working experience. OK16 is a cohesive team having a rational role assignment and also excellent personal skills: its members are nice, interesting and educated people. In my opinion, one of the most important advantages of the OK16 Hub lies on this fact. I was always treated with respect and tolerance. I think, that Ok16 has great prospects: the cultural hub moves forward in the right direction. I remember the project launch and compare with the current realities: a huge number of diverse events takes place in this space. OK16 breathes and lives its own life. It's even difficult to reserve the date before the New Year! I thought that it would be the case and I am really glad to see an achieved progress! I hope we will continue to cooperate for the benefit of our wonderful city!..»
Artist (Poland/Germany)
Justina KOEKE
I liked a lot a cooperation and I am very happy to have had the possibility to see the young artistic scene in Minsk. That was a very interesting experience. I liked a lot of our part with music mixed with performances because it worked in completely spontaneous way. I also liked a very involved public! I am really interested how this place will develop.
