A Meal exists as social sculpture, performance event, and theatrical experience delicately framed by dancing bodies, crafted recipes, and mythological beings.
A Meal came out of LEIMAY’s experience and desire to build a community. It’s about bringing people together through visceral rituals. With the state of divisiveness and partisanship currently rampant in the US, A Meal opens a space to create new relationships while questioning through art the structures and environmental challenges of food in the anthropocene.
