Local theatre company Stan’s Cafe make a trademark thoughtful and imaginative contribution to MAC’s 60th anniversary, with a show that uses grains of rice to bring to life formally abstract statistics.
Each grain of rice = one person, and you are invited to compare the one grain that is you to the millions that are not. Over a period of days, a team of performers carefully weigh out quantities of rice to represent a host of human statistics. These statistics are arranged in labelled piles, creating an ever-changing landscape of rice. Their juxtapositions can be moving, shocking, celebratory, witty and thought-provoking.
This intriguing exhibition comes complete with a special ‘MAC twist’ in honour of our landmark year, with more details released soon.
