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.
