Immersive Dinner For EIGHT Participants (3 hours)

This 7 course immersive dinner is an edible performance. The dinner, made of edible textual images and served in singular porcelain sculptures, is an attempt to create a performance that engages the audience in the most primary manner while challenging traditional assumptions in performance art. Inspired by a variety of ceremonial traditions (from the Jewish “Seder” to the Japanese tea ceremony), Dotan wishes to create a dinner that “tells itself” and becomes its own tradition: a repeated-and-singular, perishable-and-sustainable everyday art act.
