MADRID, SPAIN - DECEMBER 15: (EDITORS NOTE: Image has been converted to black and white) Spectators queue up to buy a ticket for a one of the micro theater shows at the 'Micro Teatro por Dinero' on December 15, 2012 in Madrid, Spain. In November 2009, fifty artists presented a theatre project in the thirteen rooms of a former brothel, two weeks before its demolition, with each function lasting less than 10 minutes. The initiative was a huge success, with more people queueing up outside than could enter. Today's 'Micro Theatre For Money' is named after the former brothel on Ballesta Street, and offers a cheap and original way for going out at night, especially in times of financial hardship. With each show priced at 4 Euros, over 150,000 spectators have already attended performances at the tiny theatre in the Malasana area. Anyone can submit a project to be chosen to perform for a month in one of the five tiny rooms in the basement of the theatre, making it an ideal platform for young Spanish authors and actors, often unemployed, to perform.
