A Tactile Dinner

a synæsthetic experience in seven-courses inspired by the Futurists

“This is no show, it is an experience, and one I exhort you not to miss.” – Washington City Paper

Viva la degustacione! Marking the 100th anniversary of Futurism, banished? productions cordially invites everyone to celebrate the passé-ist glory of Futurist degustation: a tactile seven-course “meal” of gastronomic revolution! Pasta Prohibited! This performance debuted at the 2009 Capital Fringe Festival.
