A powerful and vulnerable play exploring food, the kitchen, and the act of nurturing ourselves within the construction of a woman’s identity in Peruvian society.
Through storytelling, movement and music, Eating Myself aims to bring the audience closer to their own roots and traditions. On stage cooking is used to generate an intimate sensory experience full of flavour. A shared ritual with South American flavour, that wants to take the audience back to our roots and question how different we really are.
