On-site construction for 'Spiral Booths' begins...

The construction team from MDM Props have set themselves up in the Porter Gallery, and have started to assemble Vazio S/A's 'Spiral Booths' - a structure consisting of a number of intimate performance booths set around a spiral staircase.

Over the next week, the booths and facade cladding will be installed, and the team will dress the structure with the red velvet curtains which mark the entrance of each of the booths.
