Performance-Project about Food

Eating and drinking are far more than pure intake of nutrition in order to sustain bodily functions. Food has a cultural dimension and forms identity. The mythology of certain foodstuffs like bread in the western and rice in oriental cultures have inspired many artists. Eating rituals and habits, food taboos or preferences, or feelings of desire or revulsion can be incitement and motif. In eating and drinking all senses take part.

In May 2008 we worked on a project together with four Unesco-Project-Schools in Lower Saxony and performed it at Theater Lüneburg. In 2008/2009, the Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung made it possible to realize a similar project in Berlin which explores the theme in four different art media – dance, music, writing and visual arts.
