In 2005 Theater Der Welt arranged to have 104 tonnes of rice delivered to the Wagenhalle – a disused tram shed – because the world’s population was 6.2 billion and we were about to perform the first full version of Of All The People In All The World. In 2008 we came to an arrangement with a wholesale rice supplier to effectively rent us 112 tonnes of rice. As we aspire to do a third full version of the show somewhere and the world’s population is announced as 7 billion we are looking for 116 tonnes. 12 extra tonnes of rice in 7 years at a gain per person: the logistics are getting ever more challenging and I’m not necessarily just referring to our show.
