Dinner with America - Wunderbar Festival, Newcastle

Dinner with America
Wednesday 11th November, 7.30pm
@ Dance City as part of the new Wunderbar festival

Dinner with America addresses the complexities of cultural identity in the 21st century and pushes our thinking about what ‘America’ means to us. Created during the era when George W. Bush was President of the United States, and performed here a year on from Obama's historic election, the performance provides a gentle but provocative insight into a defining moment in the country’s history. As the performance space transforms and shifts through extraordinary images, it gently uncovers sub-themes of consumerism, rights, ownership, voices, hopes, harvest and division, leading to a finale which delightfully embraces its audience in a shared meal.
