Protest Feast: The F Word
Sunday 19 November 2017 – MAC Birmingham
I was commissioned to create an immersive dining experience for audiences, as part of a season of events at MAC called ‘Women & Protest’ that celebrated female strength and solidarity.
Protest Feast: The F Word saw food and feminism collide in a unique dining experience; the event was curated in response to some of the issues raised by Sally Payen in her exhibition ‘The Fence and The Shadow’, which was based on her research around Greenham Common and the women’s peace camp and anti-nuclear protests of the 1980s.
The dinner took place over two sittings of food, song and performance in a specially designed environment in MAC’s theatre space.
Protest Feast: The F Word was commissioned by MAC and supported by the Saintbury Trust and Arts Council.
