Pegasus Theatre, Oxford, 2004
Death and food – the great occasions
that bring people together.
“eat your words” takes place during a wake, where family members gather to mourn the passing of one man - a brother, father, husband. Each person brings alive their memories of the dead one, and terrible secrets are revealed that would have remained hidden, had he lived.
A highly visual performance, “eat your words” uses puppetry, sounds and visual art to express the inner turmoil of the family members as they discover the truth about the past.
Co-directed and designed by: Roger Perkins, Kay Sentance and Emma Webb: a Cultural Criminals activity.
Cultural Criminals has recently been
established to encourage creative collaborations between artists, designers,
writers, choreographers etc. and those involved with creative exploration
in the arts.
