NOTE! Unfortunately there will be no show of "La tabernera del puerto" at the Teatro de la Zarzuela because the theatre workers in Madrid are on strike.
20:30 Evening programme to be confirmed
Our Spanish colleagues have suggested that we could go and see a performance entitled ‘Monkey Mind’. It is dance with disabled interpreters. Please note this is not a Spanish performance, but a Dutch co-production touring in Spain and it will have a show in Madrid at Teatro Valle-Inclán only on Friday, May 18.
Since many of our members are already preparing to travel, we cannot check your wishes in advance. As the ticket price is only 6 euros, the Spanish hosts have bought 25 tickets for the international guests, so everyone interested in going will be able to get a ticket. A bus transfer to this performance will be available.

Some notes related to the program
a) For the transfer of May 18, RESAD-Cornejo-RESAD there will be a bus provided.

b) The lunches for days May 19 and 20 will be in one of the restaurants near the Teatro La Abadia. Each one will pay for himself/herself but we have to confirm the number because they are not big restaurants.

c) There will be a bus transport from the Theatro La Abadía to the Museo del Traje.

d) Medias Puri is a show club and discotheque quite unique, it goes from 11:30 until 6:00 am. The entrance ticket is 19,50 euros + plus whatever one drinks.

e) María Calderón has a small dye workshop for theatre costumes. Her work is very well known and she is known as "the colour alchemist." Her workshop is not far from the Teatro Abadía so we can go walking.

f) Sunday from 18:00 to 21:00 is free time and perhaps you can enjoy a walk in the Retiro Park. There are two or three rather splendid buildings and monuments in it.

g) We have not yet planned it, but it will be very pleasant to have a farewell dinner on Sunday night, with chupitos, of course.
