Mesa x Helen Cox // Bodies in Space with 5 Course Meal

  • Irene Machetti
  • Ines Neto dos Santos

Tickets: Food artist Inês Neto dos Santos creates an immersive evening with a five course meal experience. The menu and its performative presentation will be inspired in Helen Cox's new choreography, 'Bodies in Space'. Upon arrival you will be greeted with a specially created cocktail. Much more will come, hanging from the ceiling or hiding behind various elements. With food that blends and borrows themes and aesthetics from a brand new contemporary dance piece, the audience will experience this multi-sensory performance in sections throughout the evening, seamlessly linking the dance performance and the food experience together. Expect to come away from the evening with new ideas of what dance and a meal can be, both on its own and together. Bodies in Space begins from NASA's Kepler space telescope study of light emissions from stars far beyond our universe. This information has been turned into sound, and the recordings are pulsating, otherworldly, and epic - opening the imagination to the vastness of our universe. In contrast, we began to wonder, what would we hear at the other end of the scale, at an atomic scale? Our human ears are quite limited, we can't hear atoms, just like we can't hear the stars, but in a similar way to stars, we can convert their characteristics like light and colour, into sound. From the most micro and macro parts of our world, Dougie Brown (sound designer) and Helen Cox (choreographer) come together to create an experience that will ignite your curiosity and stretch your imagination.
