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 our food has taken from seed to field to table illuminating issues of food justice.


Host Maya Chowdhry orchestrates the ritual of dining using media art to gently immerse the audience in a new reality, one in which the food they love may be in short supply.
