Rice in Madrid
Our Madrid venue is impressive, it has a contemporary barrelled roof, decent natural light and the smooth tiled floor is ideal. Each time we take the show out we learn something new about it. Here the rice arrived in ten enormous sacks rather than the 20 or 25kg bags we are familiar with. This maked the get-in far more laborious than usual but a set of industrial scales, willing local help and an impressively committed Stan’s team ment we opened on time. The whole business of weighing out rice gets a bit obsessive after a while, especially when you're spending hours just filling up 20kg bags. I’ve had to go cold turkey, flying home to try and set up some fresh projects for the next few years, whilst the rest of the team stay on.
Hopefuly Amanda, Charlotte G, Heather, Jake and Karen will get to see some of the local sights, The Prado and a show or two from the festival before they close at the end of the week and the whole enterprise rolls on to Valencia.
