Feast Your Famine: a watch-and-play

An experiment in collaboration, creativity, and consciousness. With possibilities for multi-day game play or a single night's experience, audiences can join a diverse body of artists and activists in a journey of boundary crossing, soul-troubling, and action through both avant garde and traditional performances and social-action events -- set inside the framework of a re-imagined medieval feast. Join us for a unique, interactive five-night performance, re-envisioning the legacy of the "hero" in Western culture from medieval knights to today and seeking to practice new realities.

Wistaria Project -- the artistic collaboration of Jeremy Goren and Jenna Kirk -- grows strange works for the stage, communal performing events, and ritual-based plays in homes and odd places. Our work utilizes a deep research on the practices (including performance) that human beings have developed across millenia and across cultures to create real communities and the possibility for extra-ordinary experience. We work from a shared desire to create performance events that are alive and innovative (even while engaging the past) and that bring performers and spectators to really do something together — with an eye towards nothing less than justice and equity and the mysteries of human existence -- cultural and political tricksterism and poetic sublimation.

Collaborating Artists: Wistaria Project (Jeremy Goren and Jenna Kirk), Eliza Laytner [more to come!]
