FOOD is an intimate dinner party performance that uses smell, taste, touch and audience instruction to feed a meditation on the ways and whys of eating. Why do you eat what you eat? Where does it come from? What does it really cost?
At the heart of FOOD is a table of soil, surrounded by audience members. The show is performed in, on and under this soil. With his signature theatrical flavour combining rigorous design and stage illusion with an absurdist sense of humour, Sobelle pulls you into the poetic mystery of soil – the source of everything you eat. From the naked earth emerge fields of bison taken over by fields of wheat and then dust, train-lines and subdivisions, crops and companies, farms and factories, plantations and superstores all growing from the ground in a dance of agriculture – to deliver a forkful to you, the audience-consumer.
