“Commensality (the act of eating together) is important for social communion, order, health and well-being. (Johnson et al, 2021).

Meet us under the Cottonwood – There is a seat for you at the table.

What happens during a shared meal that contributes to the intangible bonds that form within a family, group, or nation-state that create a sense of togetherness?

Dear Audience: You are cordially invited to join us this August at the table under the Cottonwood tree for our early harvest festival where we will celebrate the act of eating together to explore ideas of group identity, boundaries and borders. Dress in your best black and white al fresco attire. You will be selected to join a team and gifted with a custom t-shirt. Where will you be seated?

In this collaborative performance in partnership with Always Something Farm and chef Kevin Thurston, the dinner table is the performance. Four courses of tastings bring an intimate audience together in the epic landscape of Silo City.
