Be Festival

Set Menu by Chiscón Teatro (Spain)

Set Menu explored human conflict in relation to food: a basic necessity but sometimes we take it too far. The piece investigates how a person’s relationship with food can change from healthy to pathological. It also explored, from a social point of view, how the food cultures and industries of the rich, developed world can lead to obesity. Music, image, body language and – of course – food combine in this highly symbolic universe.

Chiscón Teatro was created with the aim to explore current human conflicts and issues. The company believes in direct communication with audiences as a way to bring a performance alive. The company was founded in Madrid in 2009, and each member contributes though different artistic and educational disciplines from psychology to communication.
