MADE FROM SCRATCH: A SHOW ABOUT FOOD looks at our relationships to food and the stories that food inspires in us. Everyone has strong memories that are inspired by food, whether they are nostalgic memories of a distant childhood or perhaps less than happy recollections of sparse meals prepared by a family in disadvantaged circumstances. By featuring performers from across all ages, genders, races socioeconomic statuses, and life experiences, this show will demonstrate that the love of food crosses all boundaries. Each performer will begin by describing a recipe that is important to them in some way. After the introduction of the recipe, each performer is invited to present a piece of performance art – poetry, song, fictional or nonfictional story, dance, or any other expression they deem fit. All of the recipes discussed will be available for tasting by the audience.
