A while back, I wrote about The Raven and The Writing Desk, and Jack Rabbit's Derby, both amazing events created by the Food and Theatre Company.
Well, they're at it again. The Gravitas Feast invites art and theatre-lovers to dine amid powerful paintings by Abigail Reed and life-sized fabric sculptures by Dorcas Casey. For three nights only, innovative performance, fine dining, fine art and foodie fun meet in the nomadic, harbourside Antlers Gallery (while we're here, go see the Antlers kickstarter campaign that launched today).
The Gravitas Feast will laud the nature of the beasts represented in the gallery behind them, exploring the continual and complex relationship between humans and animals. Anna and Orla, founders of the Food and Theatre Company, are known for their droll style and interactive shows so this one is bound to be fab.
The three-course menu, developed by chef John Watson (ex Michelin-starred Casa Mia restaurant), looks adventurous: diners are invited to dress for dinner, as they explore a dream world colliding with the here and now while enjoying experimental dishes such as Crispy Pigs Ears with Apple Roast Ox Heart.
The Gravitas Feast takes place over three evenings this weekend: 11, 12 and 13 April 2014, 7-10pm, at Antlers Gallery, Purifier House, Lime Kiln Road, Bristol BS1 5AD.
Full price tickets cost £40 (groups of 6 or more cost £35), available from the Food and Theatre Company.
Bristol, you are so very good at this stuff.
