Excerpt from script:
Eating Venice: Lagoon Legumes, Ceremony & Heritage

Working with performance, text and gastronomy Eating Venice explores the many political, aesthetic and affective dimensions of food and eating in historic and contemporary colonisation processes. Here the specific context of the city of Venice and its materiality is used as a site for investigation.

Performed at the Material Encounters Conference at the Research Pavillion, Sala del Camino, Venice (2019)
AFTERWORKS

Through hosting, food and discussion AFTERWORKS aims to address normative historic structures and to rethink and reframe approaches to being together via specifically framed encounters. AFTERWORKS grew out of a desire to engage with art and audience specifically but not exclusively through food and commensality; seeking meaningful relationships and dialogues with local material, artists, audiences and social initiatives. Most recently AFTERWORKS have specifically been looking at the role of food and eating in historic and contemporary colonisation processes.
