After a challanging drive up from Rastatt, it rained pretty much none stop all the way from Strausberg to Stoke. Reliquary’s very complicated machinery worked perfectly even after 600 miles of shaking and the performers, nourished by Alsace wine and some lovely local dishs, did OK as well thanks to Peter Finegan for some excellent work with rice we left about five kilos on the marketplatz! We enjoyed a vintage, in more ways than one, performance by Leo Bassi and the show Pelat from the exceptional Joan Catala. If only Rastatt was closer!
