What’s Eating Reality? at Leeds International Festival 2020

Digital artist Maya Chowdhry invites you to a dinner party with a difference.
Be inspired by a delicious menu of seasonal, local and reclaimed food, expertly created by artist and chef Helen Russell Brown. Watch as the dining table comes alive with moving images of food production and commentaries from local food activists.
What’s Eating Reality? is an augmented feast, in which host and maitre’d Maya orchestrates dinner using performance and projection mapping to gently immerse you into a new reality – one in which the food you love may be in short supply.

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 show explores the journey your 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.
