CULTUREMART 2018: A Meal Ximena Garnica & Shige Moriya / LEIMAY

Meet A Meal

About the show

Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya of LEIMAY share a study for their project A Meal. In this study a ritualistic parade of love, sympathy and desire transforms the theater into a open landscape of bodies in constant state of offering. A Meal is a contemporary ritual of offering, sharing, and eating on a stage delicately framed by dancing bodies, crafted foods, music, and light. A poem for the senses to endow a meal with meaning.

Would you like to be part of the process of this project? We love to have conversations with food lovers, farmers, chefs, and those who are knowledgeable about food-related traditions. Please speak to us during the potluck or reach out to us directly via email.

On a shared bill with 9000 Paper Balloons
