A Research about Food
Worldpremiere moved to February 2022 due to Covid-19
Is the meat industry still a model for the future? Does sugar kill more people every year than all the wars put together? Should I stop eating avocados if I still want to sleep with a clear conscience? Food has become a complex matter. Every purchase becomes an ideological question of principle: cheap or healthy, exquisite or regional, fair or profitable? Food production is one of the most future-oriented global industries. Nestlé, Unilever and similar multinational companies not only determine what ends up on the table, but are also involved in social and ecological conflicts on the entire planet. On the other hand, more and more farmers are switching to organic farming, growing original varieties again and asking themselves how they can escape mass production. Should we return to traditional methods or revolutionize food production?
Together with citizens of Dresden, the artists will explore the ecological, political and social dimensions of our daily food supply. The result is an immersive, multimedia theatre performanceWe are looking for citizens who are professionally or privately involved with the topic of nutrition in the most diverse facets: whether farmer, nutrition activist, self-supporter, nutritionist, organic farmer, food chemist, butcher, frutarian, fan of Paleo or vegan food or someone who often goes container shopping – we need your expertise! in which the audience is seated in a 360° circular horizon developed by the Costa Compagnie and is thus placed right in the middle of food production.
