Autobiographical Food invites artists to prepare dishes live from recipes based on personal stories in a Ready, Steady, Cook style set up with Terry O’Connor as master of ceremonies, during two hours of eating and sharing.
The event intends to open up a dialogue around how much of ourselves we put into our practice, when this tips the work/life balance and around care for ourselves in the industry. The event results in sharing the prepared dishes with the audience.
Here is the first presentation of the work with Bobby Baker and Selina Thompson at Sheffield Theatre Workshop. Commissioned as part of START an Artist Led Development Programme by Compass Live Art and Invisible Flock.
