To find out what’s getting Madrid’s creatives thrumming, head down to this vast space, a 100 year old slaughterhouse which has been transformed into a multi-functional centre for the arts by the local council. With communication, experimentation and progression very much in mind, the vast warehouse spaces now house a theatre, design centre and the ‘Intermediae’ – a place dedicated to self-criticism, reflection and dialogue between artists and the public. Activities include documentary screenings, workshops and plays, whilst a lot of focus has gone into making the site a host for events including Acción!MAD, The Action and Performance Art Festival, and institutions like the Centro Nacional de la Moda. With more warehouses in the process of being converted, watch this space.
