In August I invited director/ writer and founder of UK company Critical Mass, Sarah Chew, to spend a residency week in Copenhagen. Together we were to contemplate ways in which to combine two of our shared passions in new and thought provoking ways. Concepts combining food and theatre spurred both politically charged and highly entertaining ideas. We discussed forms of solo experiences and group dining shows and sampled spaces in which they could be performed. A joyful part of the residency was doing a reading of a new text Sarah is working on about personal encounters at home and in Iran.
