SHORE: Feast

  • Arts House, Meat Market 5 Blackwood Street North Melbourne, VIC 3051 Australia
I want us to take more time with and for each other and the world. I want us to relish gathering together. I want us to see performance as a vital part of this, as a vital part of understanding and paying attention to the world and all of the stories in it. – Emily Johnson

SHORE: Feast is a potluck celebration.

Inspired by Johnson’s childhood, where her extended family would gather for harvest, SHORE: Feast invites you to dinner.

Everyone is asked to prepare and contribute a dish that has a special meaning or story behind it, and then share the recipe with others. These recipes will be collected on the day and then be compiled into a SHORE Zine, and sent to all who have attended.

Marking the final event for SHORE and coinciding with the last day of the Yirramboi Festival, SHORE: Feastwill see dancers, artists, writers, gardeners, children, families, audience and community members gather at the table to break bread, share their SHORE experiences, and eat delicious, homemade food.

Honouring the simple act of a shared meal, SHORE: Feast reconnects us to our sense of community, the rituals of foodmaking, the plants and animals that feed us, and the joy of celebration.

All are welcome.
