Digesting Ritual

Friday 6th July 2018

Rex Doyle Studio Theatre, Ivy Arts Centre

Digesting Ritual presents an afternoon of research papers and performance exploring relationships between the food we eat, the food we waste, and our bodies. The event broaches a range of topics including: food waste and motherhood in austerity Britain; excess, waste and enjoyment in molecular gastronomy; food, hospitality and hosting; and food, weather lore and climate change. The day concludes with a performance by Amanda Couch, involving the procession, destruction and communal consumption of a gigantic pie cooked in a specially-prepared underground oven.
