Dinner with America is the second in a trilogy of performance installations addressing the complexities of cultural identity in the 21st Century. Where the first piece in the trilogy, Mr Quiver (Nuffield Autumn 07), explored Indian and English stereotypes, this piece questions what America means to us.
As the performance space shifts and transforms around the audience, it gently uncovers themes of consumerism, rights, ownership, voices, hopes, harvest and division in a visually compelling and unusual piece of work.
Commissioned by Coastal Currents and Fresh, with support from The Basement, Goldsmiths College, Queen Mary, University of London and Nuffield Theatre Lancaster. Development funded by Arts Council England.
Intriguing and sometimes funny and sometimes beautiful - like a kaleidoscope that kept coming throwing up different images
