What’s Eating Our Reality?

Set in an imagined future What’s Eating Our Reality? is a three course meal with a difference. This intimate piece explores the journey our food has taken from seed to field to table, illuminating issues of food justice.

Host Maya Chowdhry orchestrates the ritual of dining and uses media art to gently immerse the audience in a new reality, one in which the food they love may be in short supply.

Created by Maya Chowdhry in collaboration with culinary artists FoodSketz.
