Family Dinner is an immersive and intimate dining performance– a cumulative project that invites the public to dine with performers. The work is at once a performance, rehearsal, embodied recording, a choreographic exploration of a shared meal and conversation with dinner guests.

The Lexicon is the choreographic culling of each Family Dinner performance to date, created for the stage. Sourcing from the body of the Family Dinner performers as an imperfect recording device, the quotidian dining gestures are multiplied and re-organized; rendering them into a tight score and presenting them back to the viewer.

Reception in Cox & Palmer Second Space after show.
