In this study a ritualistic parade of love, sympathy and desire transforms the theater into an open landscape of bodies in constant state of offering. A Meal is a contemporary ritual of offering, sharing, and eating on a stage delicately framed by dancing bodies, crafted foods, music, and light. A poem for the senses to endow a meal with meaning.
