The Urban Dinner

The Urban Dinner proposed a theatrical stage of the act of dining where food became an art form and the act of eating an engaging,and participatory experience. Dinner organizers dined together with the general public in a playful, colorful and interactive manner.  Through this installation performance the team investigated how food can create connections with people that overcome social, cultural and ethnic divisions. Identity is obliterated; people were unified and connected despite their disparities. Through art and intersensory experiences we proposed new channels of communication and sharing between us.
