Eating and Dying
July 16, 2018
7:00pm until 10:00pm
On July 16, we’ll explore the two most universal human experiences — eating and dying.
Along with Firehouse Theatre and Death Club Radio, E.A.T. Foundation is taking part in an interactive performance and pop-up dining experience about funerary food, death and remembrance within the culinary community, and the death/extinction of various foods.
Death Club Radio’s hosts, hospice chaplain Alane Cameron Ford and Phil Ford, will be joined by members of their regular crew and some special guests to entertain and inform you about the connections between food and death, interspersed with tastings of special foods (and wine pairings) prepared by E.A.T. Foundation’s guest chef.
By exploring the relationship between food and death, we intend to take a topic that is often abstract, and sometimes difficult to understand and discuss, and make it more accessible, comfortable, and relatable. Using the cultural and communicative currency of food, we will explore ideas of cycles, rebirth, imagination, “perfection,” and “endings” as they exist in cuisine and in our lives more generally.
You can read more about the event here on Firehouse Theatre’s ticketing page.
Tickets are $75 TOTAL for the performance + 3-course meal complete with wine pairings and craft cocktail. We would love for you to join us for a chance to practice your curiosity, support your local arts & your community, and spend an evening exploring two of humanity’s most universal truths — Eating and Dying.
