Hands On Sensuality
“This event is a feast for the senses, it is a performance that requires indulgence, a combination of the social, artistic and technical elements of food and its consumption. Kaye’s ability to bring people together through these carefully crafted morsels speaks to the power of her artform.”
Review by Tom Glover for Arts Brum
As part of my residency for Flat 8 (Nov 2018-March 2019) I hosted a series of events which continued my research into the notion of ‘Expanded Dining‘. Hands On Sensuality has since been presented with Theatre Producer Christie Hill as part of Leeds Indie Food Festival (May 2019) and is currently being considered as a touring performance, as well as a bespoke commissioned dining experience.
Hands On Sensuality was developed to explore the sensual potential of dining from our own hands, exploring the sensory impact of eating beyond the plate. As part of the events, the hand was transformed into a re-imagined vessel for consumption, with each course being served on a different areas of the hand or wrist. Each of the courses has been carefully designed to invoke different sensations, drawing a link between sensuality and the experience of eating.
