Bury us well Playing at RhizomeDC on: 7/20-7/24, 2016
A dystopian cafeteria-styled gastro-performance
The Futurist-inspired, mobile gastro-performance that premiered at the 2011 CapFringe made a pit-stop at Flashpoint Gallery September 9-24, 2011.
Pulling inspiration for its shape from the Bugatti that founded Futurism, Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion Car, Ernest Trova’s “Falling Man” sculpture and the Mercedes F-Cell Roadster among many other influences, the TACTILE DINNER CAR aims to mobilize the pseudo-edible Futuristic fusion of cuisine and theatre. Tactile Dinner Car at Flashpoint will serve up playfully audacious “dishes” appropriated from F.T. Marinetti’s Futurist Cookbook, a tome of avant-garde experiments that use jarring sensory experiences to renew the art of eating.
