Reflection on Digestion: The Stomach is a participatory performance that reflects on the process and image of the stomach and digestion through food and language.
Whilst consuming a gastronomic dish of tripe, participants will listen to a reading, a presentation of collaged texts from the fields of art, film, philosophy, history, and contemporary biomedical science. The voices of David Hillman, Nietzsche, Galen, Peter Greenaway, and neuro-gastroenterologist, Michael Gershon, amongst others will guide participants to explore how we cognitively and bodily digest food, knowledge, and experience, and fashion our sense of self.
