FROM THE BLOG
Generally, we are discouraged from eating in theaters. High school auditoriums and grand opera houses alike are plastered with “No Food or Drink” signs. Food is relegated to after parties, lobbies and the hidden pockets of hand bags to sneak after the lights go down. Cuisine and Confessions flips this script on its head. Food is the focus of this show in a more than metaphorical sense. The set and the plot focus around an oven that runs throughout, cooking a banana bread that the audience (spoiler alert!) will get a chance to taste at the end.
This is a show about the power of sharing meals and secrets with our loved ones. It explores the ways in which the food we eat connects us to each other and to our own past. When we cook for others, we build relationships and we build memories. Here in Cuisine & Confessions, the food becomes a way into the storytelling of this entirely unique circus show, granting the audience a full sensory experience. When we say come the circus, stay for the banana bread, we really mean it!"
