It seems that we will delay a bit (a conversation to engage another team
has been postponed to next week).
Anyway, that size constraints are complicated (250!). Our second choice
was UNIA --some kind of university in a nice monumental building near
the center--, but it doesn't have a space of those characteristics. I
think we can only get that kind of spaces in the Universities and the
easiest options are far away from the center of the city, a model very
far from the original proposal (that aimed to use alternative cultural
spaces in the center of Seville). I don't remember that crowds in
Lepizig or London. Are those realistic numbers?

Best, Ale.
