THIS IS ME EATING___
concept by GIORGIA VALENTI
This is Me Eating___ is an online series that deals with food, eating and body image. Each participant who feels inspired by this project can submit a piece (which can take any form: videos, poetry, monologues etc.) and fill in the blank with what they are metaphorically eating.
COMPANY MEMBERS' VIDEOS:
"...Et Alia is truly making the best out of a bad situation and uniting artists across the world in a project that is both intimate and moving..."
"On How To Be a Monster is not a primer which provides a road map. Our society’s contemptible self‑absorption is certainly a big target here as is our ability to turn a blind eye..."
"If Müller’s short, spiky play unfolds with an ironic, semi-absurdist detachment from reality, it is also, in very real ways, a deeply felt coming-of-age story..."
ON HOW TO BE A MONSTER
BY MARIA MÜLLER
When: February 22nd, 24th & 25th
Where: The Tank
John, Clara, Ron, Lara, Don, Tara, Sean and Sarah are four couples who like to discuss important issues such as global warming, planned parenthood or starvation in Africa. Or do they? They might have more urgent things going on. Some might say they’re in competition, but they would surely disagree with that, because they’re very good friends! Halfway through the night, Tara disappears. Will they find her? And what is that sound, anyway?
