'Marshwallow?' 'Not thanks.'

The Centre de Développement Chorégraphique in Toulouse have been given some space in a building near their office and they've turned it into a big flat with 7 bedrooms and a kitchen/living area that has a massive dance studio above it. That way, companies can come for a couple of weeks and all stay and work together in the same place. At the moment, it looks a bit like an old people's home with all its fire safety cards, disabled showers and non-slip floors. So they asked a lady who used to be a decorator and an awesome upholsterer to make it look nice and look after it. So she's going to decorate each room and she'll also be there when it's occupied to welcome people and cook one meal a day for them.

They also thought it would be a good idea to have me draw all over the walls. I drew a forest with some animals saying stuff vaguely related to communal living and painted some little reminders in all the bedrooms, bathrooms and corridor.

The pictures are not very good but I'll take some proper ones when the furniture's in.
